  • Reinvestment: Three types of reinvestment plans benefit the investor in growth, dividend, and reinvestment. When filling out an investment form, you will be expected to fill out one of the three options, and should you decide to not to select any option, the funding house will choose a temporary option for you that will be mentioned in the SID. It is often the growth option, and investors can change their previously selected options of reinvestment in the future.
