by Alec Lucas, Morningstar
With nearly 8,000 different U.S. mutual funds in existence today, investors have a vast array of options to build portfolios that are broadly diversified across asset classes and geographies. Yet, they also face the challenge of knowing which funds to choose and how to use them well. Morningstar Research Services provides independent and ongoing assessment of best-in-class funds to consider. This talk will draw on that research in helping investors toward a simple, but not simplistic, approach to investing.
