3 Top-Ranked Mutual Funds for Your Retirement - September 07, 2020

Zacks Equity Research

If you're invested in any of the funds in our "Magnificent Retirement Mutual Funds" list, congratulations on owning some of the best managed and top-performing mutual funds. If you are lucky enough to discover our list of Top-Ranked Funds for the first time, it's never too late to start investing with the best, especially when it comes to your retirement.

How can you tell a good mutual fund from a bad one? It's pretty basic: if the fund is diversified, has low fees, and shows strong performance, it's a keeper. Of course, there's a wide range, but using our Zacks Rank, we've found three mutual funds that would be great additions to any long-term retirement investors' portfolios.

Here are the funds that have achieved the #1 (Strong Buy) Zacks Rank and have low fees.

If you are looking to diversify your portfolio, consider Hartford Global Growth HLS IA (HIALX). HIALX is a Global - Equity mutual fund. These funds invest in large markets like the U.S., Europe, and Japan, and operate with very few geographical limitations. This fund is a winner, boasting an expense ratio of 0.8%, management fee of 0.75%, and a five-year annualized return track record of 13.47%.

MassMutual Select Mid Cap Growth R3 (MEFNX) is a stand out amongst its peers. MEFNX is a Mid Cap Growth mutual fund. These funds aim to target companies with a market capitalization between $2 billion and $10 billion that are also expected to exhibit more extensive growth opportunities for investors than their peers. With five-year annualized performance of 10.29%, expense ratio of 1.41% and management fee of 0.68%, this diversified fund is an attractive buy with a strong history of performance.

Artisan Developing World Advisor (APDYX): 1.15% expense ratio and 1.03% management fee. APDYX is a Non US - Equity fund. Many of these funds like to allocate across emerging and developed markets, and will often focus on all cap levels. The fund is mainly invested in equities, has a long reputation of salutary performance, and has yearly returns of 14.94% over the last five years.

We hope that your investment advisor (if you use one) has you invested in one or all of the top-ranked mutual funds we've reviewed. But if that isn't the case, it might be time to have a conversation or reconsider this vitally important relationship.
