Top 100 Mutuals

To find the very best-performing mutual funds the small investor who wants to maximize what his investments can do for him/her should seek the advice of a professional. There are over 8,000 public mutual funds available and to find the top 100 is no small feat.

If an investor is still inclined to find these top mutual funds there are a series of steps that will be helpful in reaching this goal. The first and most obvious is to determine just how much money you have and how long can you let it be utilized for. Next, browse through the personal finance sections of libraries and book stores. You can learn a lot there and at no charge. The third thing on my list would be to look for investment sites on the internet that have been developed for investors and do not have and personal or professional connection to any particular funds. Step five would be to cross reference the lists you have completed and see which funds seem to appear more consistently than others and the final step would be to choose a few of the mutual funds that appear on these frequent lists and do more specific research on them.

An amateur investor should keep it in mind as well that different sites and businesses may rate their mutual funds differently. On one site the top 100 won't be the same as the top 100 on another site. So in order to make a valued judgment you have to look for and find out what were the criteria they used when picking their top 100 lists.

To define top 100 funds you must think of top-performing and the funds with the best returns. A good smart fund should be more than just the best return however and when looking at the criteria that each top 100 list produces you should consider that criteria carefully. Decide beforehand what it is you want and expect from your investments...does the fund provide that? Try to avoid highly rated funds for they may sound great but not really meet your individual needs as an investor. Finally, always check the sources of the top 100 lists to ensure there is no conflict of interest where the funds are actually being rated by their own investment firms...it happens.

Discuss It!
