Focused fund

A mutual 

Fund

 that holds large positions in a small number of stocks. While most mutual funds hold 100-200 

Position

, a focused 

Fund

 will usually hold only 10-30 positions. They emphasize quality over quantity, and would rather hold just the stocks they have the most confidence in, rather than diversifying across a large number of holdings. In theory this should enable them to more thoroughly 

Research

 and track their holdings, although they lose the benefits of 

Diversification

 and tend to be more 

Volatile

 than other mutual funds.
