Investopedia explains 'Fund Supermarkets'


As the mutual fund industry has matured, fund families have been finding it increasingly difficult to channel investors to funds solely from their family, due to competition from other mutual funds and newer products such as exchange-traded funds. Investors also prefer investing across different fund families, since a single family is unlikely to have the top performers in all of the myriad categories now available.
