    The 30 Best Mutual Funds in 401(k) Retirement Plans

    How good are the mutual funds in your 401(k) plan? Choose wisely, and you might sip café au lait as you celebrate your retirement on an around-the-world cruise. Choose unwisely, and you might have to settle for the local Starbucks.Every year, with the help of financial data firm BrightScope, which ranks 401(k) plans, we look at the 100 mutual funds with the most assets in 401(k) and other defined-contribution plans, including 403(b)s. To help you pick the best mutual funds for your 401(k), we analyze the actively managed funds among the 100 most popular options. Most of the funds are solid, some are standout and only a handful are disappointing. In the end, 30 funds, described below, won our seal of approval.We didn't weigh in on the index funds that rank high in employer-sponsored plan assets because the art of choosing a good index fund rests on three simple questions: Which index do you want to emulate? How well has the fund done in matching that index? How much does the fund charge? We have no problem with the index funds listed in the top 100.But assessing actively managed mutual funds is trickier. We analyzed each fund's long-term returns and year-by-year performance. We looked past raw results to examine each fund's volatility and how it fared in difficult markets. We also considered manager tenure and fees, among other factors.Here are the 30 best mutual funds for 401(k) retirement savers, plucked out of the nation's 100 most popular options. Some of these funds might not be available in your 401(k), and some might not be suitable for your personal situation. But each of these mutual funds stands out for their quality, making it a good choice for its respective category. SEE ALSO: The Berkshire Hathaway Portfolio: All 47 Buffett Stocks Explained
