Non-Publicly Offered Mutual Fund

DEFINITION of 'Non-Publicly Offered Mutual Fund'

Mutual funds that are not offered for sale to the general public. Non-publicly offered mutual funds are usually registered via private placement, not as securities, and investors who buy them must meet suitability requirements for income and net worth.

These funds should not be confused with closed-end funds, which have a limited number of shares but are usually offered to the public at large.
