The funds in our "Magnificent Retirement Mutual Funds" list are among the best managed and best performing mutual funds available. If you are just finding out about our Top-Ranked Funds list, we welcome you!

How can you tell a good mutual fund from a bad one? It's pretty basic: if the fund is diversified, has low fees, and shows strong performance, it's a keeper. Of course, there's a wide range, but using our Zacks Rank, we've found three mutual funds that would be great additions to any long-term retirement investors' portfolios.

Let's break down some of the mutual funds with the highest Zacks Rank and the lowest fees.

T. Rowe Price Global Growth Stock Retail (RPGEX) has a 0.93% expense ratio and 0.64% management fee. RPGEX is a Global - Equity mutual fund. These funds invest in large markets like the U.S., Europe, and Japan, and operate with very few geographical limitations. With yearly returns of 12.13% over the last five years, this fund clearly wins.

Fidelity Small Cap Growth (FCPGX) is a stand out amongst its peers. FCPGX is a Small Cap Growth mutual fund and tends to feature small companies in up-and-coming industries and markets. With five-year annualized performance of 11.36%, expense ratio of 1.06% and management fee of 0.84%, this diversified fund is an attractive buy with a strong history of performance.

John Hancock2 Capital Appreciation 1 (JICPX). Expense ratio: 0.79%. Management fee: 0.7%. Five year annual return: 16.82%. JICPX 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.
