Great performance, diversification, and low fees: it's a pretty simple formula for a great mutual fund. Some are better than others, but utilizing our Zacks Rank, we have identified three mutual funds that would make great additions to long-term investors' portfolios.
Let's learn about some of Zacks' highest ranked mutual funds with low fees you may want to consider.
If you are looking to diversify your portfolio, consider JPMorgan Intrepid Growth Fund A (JIGAX). JIGAX is a Large Cap Growth mutual fund, and these funds invest in many large U.S. firms that are projected to grow at a faster rate than their large-cap peers. This fund is a winner, boasting an expense ratio of 0.84%, management fee of 0.3%, and a five-year annualized return track record of 11.42%.
Lord Abbett Convertible Fund R2 (LBCQX): 1.45% expense ratio and 0.7% management fee. LBCQX is a Convertible Bonds mutual fund, and these funds are unique in the fixed income world; these securities have components of both fixed income and equity, making them hybrid securities. With yearly returns of 10.32% over the last five years, LBCQX is an effectively diversified fund with a long reputation of solidly positive performance.
T. Rowe Price Diversified Mid Cap Growth (PRDMX). Expense ratio: 0.8%. Management fee: 0.64%. Five year annual return: 12.08%. PRDMX is a Mid Cap Growth mutual fund.
