What other considerations exist when attempting to choose the right mutual fund?
Another consideration is how well the fund performs in comparison to its peers. Is it the best, or is it among the worst? Consider also the actual manager, and the time the manager has been managing this portfolio, since it is his stock picks that will create the returns you will realize. Has the manager been in the job for a few months, years, or decades? Does the manager have a great track record over time?
