Here’s the list of what we consider to be among the best Mutual Funds based on performance, management expertise, risk and cost (including all fees).  You can use these funds interchangeable depending on what’s available through your employer or investment broker.  Current performance and expense ratios for each fund can be found by visiting their website.  Please be sure to read the fund’s prospectus prior to investing any money in a fund.

You can also use our list of best index funds and target date funds as an alternative for your retirement accounts.  If you need a little help putting it all together consider our Value Investors Association Retirement Investing Journal which will help you retire with more money, while saving less.
