3 Top-Ranked Mutual Funds for Your Retirement - August 27, 2020

The funds in our "Magnificent Retirement Mutual Funds" list are some of the top-performing, best managed funds available. If you're already invested in them, congratulations! If you're not, don't worry - it's never too late to start getting the advantages of these outstanding funds for your retirement.

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 learn about some of Zacks' highest ranked mutual funds with low fees you may want to consider.

Harbor Capital Appreciation Investor (HCAIX) has a 1.03% expense ratio and 0.6% management fee. HCAIX 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. With yearly returns of 16.19% over the last five years, this fund clearly wins.

Lord Abbett Convertible Fund I (LCFYX) is a stand out amongst its peers. LCFYX is categorized as a Convertible Bonds fund, and in the fixed income world, these funds are quite unique. These types of securities are a hybrid, meaning they have components of both fixed income and equity. With five-year annualized performance of 10.99%, expense ratio of 0.86% and management fee of 0.7%, this diversified fund is an attractive buy with a strong history of performance.

AllianzGI Mid-Cap Fund P (ARMPX) is an attractive large-cap allocation. ARMPX is a Mid Cap Growth mutual fund. Mid Cap Growth funds pick stocks--usually companies with a market cap between $2 billion and $10 billion--that demonstrate extensive growth opportunities for investors compared to their peers. ARMPX has an expense ratio of 0.89%, management fee of 0.87%, and annual returns of 13.12% over the past five years.
