3 Large-Cap Growth Mutual Funds to Buy for Impressive Returns

Read MoreHide Full Article

Large-cap funds are ideal investment options for those seeking a high-return potential accompanied by lesser risk than what small-cap and mid-cap funds bear. These funds have exposure to large-cap stocks with a long-term performance history, assuring more stability than what mid or small-caps offer.

Additionally, growth funds offer incremental gains on capital by investing in stocks of companies that are projected to rise in value over the long term. However, a relatively higher tolerance for risk is a prerequisite other than the willingness to park money for a long period of time while investing in these securities. This is because these may experience relatively greater fluctuation than the other fund classes.

Below, we share with you three top-ranked large-cap growth mutual funds, namely Fidelity Advisor Series Equity Growth Fund (FMFMX - Free Report) , MFS Massachusetts Investors Growth Stock Fund Class A (MIGFX - Free Report) and JPMorgan Growth Advantage Fund Class A (VHIAX - Free Report) .
