Top Mutual Fund Families

Could knowing what the top mutual fund families are help you to pick the top families in the future? It may do, and it will certainly help you to weed out families which don't seem to be performing well at all.

But before you do this, it is worth finding out what the term 'fund families' actually means. The name itself gives you a useful clue as to the meaning. A fund family is a group of mutual funds coming from one company. So instead of a company offering a single mutual fund, it will offer you lots of different ones, all forming a 'family'.

It's well worth thinking about investing with a fund family too, since the top performing mutual funds tend to be part of a fund family. But all of this makes fund families sound bulletproof - and they aren't.

Earlier in the year various reports were issued which pointed out that the best performances from fund families were actually pretty poor in comparison with how well they might have done in the past. This makes it clear that even when you choose the top performers you can still lose out on a good return. This is the nature of the stock market however, and you should always remember that even with the biggest and the best fund families, you can still lose money somewhere along the line. There are no guarantees when the stock market is involved.

It is important to remember that these prices and results were gained during a time of bad results all round for the financial markets though. So while names like T Rowe Price and Legg Mason did well and came top of the pile, their actual fund family performances were not very good at all.

As you can see there can be stark lessons to be learned when looking at top mutual fund families. They can sometimes be great performers - but alternatively they can also be the best of a very bad bunch of performers. A lot may depend on the external financial picture - so be sure to look at all the facts before investing your money.
