Having an investor write you a check may seem like the perfect answer if you want to expand your business. After all, it's money without the hassle of repayment or interest. But the money come with huge strings attached. You must share your equity with the venture capitalist or angel investor.

An equity fund is an open or closed-end fund that invests primarily in stocks, allowing investors to buy into the fund and thus buy a basket of stocks more easily than they could purchase the individual securities.
