The Investment Language Teacher

The Video Library

The Video Library was created to teach people the information that needs to be understood to compare mutual funds. This information includes some very important investment principles as well as information which is specific to mutual funds.

Every single mutual fund is constructed the same way and produces the same documented information for investors. This documented information is written so that the average investor can understand it.

Stock funds all have the exact same fee and performance-related metrics available. There are a few important metrics besides just total return which need to be understood.

Bond funds have the same information as stock funds but also have information that is specific to bonds only, things like credit and interest rate risk metrics.

The Video Library explains all this information in way that makes sense. We also explain the components of stocks and bonds that you need to understand in order to really understand those types of mutual funds.


Informed investors want access to funds with lower fees and superior "risk-adjusted performance". The ultimate goal of The Video Library is to create many informed investors.


The average video is 3 minutes long and there is almost two and a half hours of content in total. Everything is explained in a way that everyone can understand.

This short video provides a brief overview of The Video Library of The Investment Language Teacher. If you want more information about the topics covered, go here.




Sample Video From The Video Library


This sample video is the third of sixteen videos for the series "A Comprehensive Explanation Of Stock Funds". Part of understanding stock funds involves having a basic understanding of stocks. This includes knowing the key characteristics of different types of stocks so that we can judge which kinds of stock funds may be most appropriate for our own personal circumstances.

In this video growth stocks are discussed. It's important to understand growth stocks since they are found not only in growth funds, but they are also found in blended funds, which buy both growth and value stocks. Concepts and terms which are mentioned but aren't explained in this video, like dividends for instance, are explained in detail in other videos.
