An index fund is a mutual fund that tracks the performance of a certain index. For example, T. Rowe Price Equity Index 500 Fund seeks to match the performance of the Standard & Poor's 500 Stock Index®. The S&P 500 is made up of primarily large-capitalization companies that represent a broad spectrum of the U.S. economy and a substantial part of the U.S. stock market's total capitalization.
