From the paper:

"The idea of pooling money together for the purpose of investing started in Europe in the mid-1800s. The first pooled fund in the United States was created in 1893 for the faculty and staff of Harvard University. On March 21, 1924, the first mutual fund was started in the United States. It was called the Massachusetts Investor?s Trust. It grew from $50,000 in assets in 1924 to $392,000 one year later with approximately 200 shareholders. Today there are over 10000 in mutual funds in the US today totaling around $7 trillion dollars with approximately 83 million investors, according to Dustin Woodard at About.com."
