    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

    The 10 Best Vanguard Funds for 2020

    If you're looking to upgrade your portfolio in the new year, you'd be wise to look first at Vanguard - the proprietor of low-cost, high quality funds. The best Vanguard funds tend to have similar qualities. They're inexpensive. They're easy to understand. And when they're managed funds, they're managed well.Jack Bogle, who the world lost about a year ago, will long be remembered for his passionate advocacy of low-cost investing in general, and the index fund in particular. Pursuing those two ideas relentlessly, he built Vanguard into one of the world's largest investment companies with more than $5.5 trillion in assets.But Bogle possessed another talent that went virtually unnoticed. He was a superior judge of actively managed mutual funds.Consider: When Vanguard opened for business on May 1, 1975, Wellington Management - where Bogle had worked previously - was already on board. Vanguard's Wellington (VWELX) is now one of the nation's largest and most successful balanced funds with more than $110 billion in assets. And Wellington remains the subadvisor on several more Vanguard funds.In the mid-1980s, Bogle heard that several top managers wanted to leave the American Funds, which had a reputation of being such a good place to work that no one ever left. But those managers did leave, to start Primecap Management. Vanguard Primecap (VPMCX) and later Vanguard Primecap Core (VPCCX) were launched. They've been two of the most successful mutual funds ever.Today, however, we're going to look at the best Vanguard funds to buy for 2020. While Bogle is no longer with us, his firm still is renowned for both its skilled management and its dirt-cheap indexed products. Here, we'll look at some of each that should serve investors well in the new year. SEE ALSO: The 30 Best Mutual Funds in 401(k) Retirement Plans
