Best of the Big Fund Families


Many investors might look to a single fund family to populate their portfolio, either out of compulsion -- if, for example, their 401(k) plan offers only funds from one brand -- or convenience.

So, we surveyed hundreds of funds offered by Fidelity, Pimco, T. Rowe Price and Vanguard, prominent purveyors of no-load mutual funds. In picking our favorites, we considered management approach, past performance, volatility and more. In the process, we also learned something about what each firm does best.
