DEFINITION of 'Tilt Fund'

A fund developed when an institution compiles a core holding of stocks that mimic a benchmark type index such as the S&P 500 to which additional securities are added to help tilt the fund toward outperforming the market. These funds are typically used by major investors in an effort to enhance overall investment returns. The right mix/tilt of stocks provides both safety and performance.
