Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine’s Top 25 Mutual Funds

I talked earlier this week about which mutual funds you might want to consider investing in.  Money Magazine lists its top 70 every year, and my favorite finance magazine, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, names its top 25 mutual funds every year as well. 

  

A good advantage of Kiplinger’s list is that they also break the 25 mutual funds down into smaller investment portfolios for every phase of your life. 

 

My favorite is their long-term group of mutual funds.  Below is a listing of their portfolio for individuals who will not need to use the money invested for over ten years or longer.  You will notice that there are not any bond funds.  Bonds are too conservative for young investors who are many years away from retirement.
