With more than $10  trillion invested worldwide in mutual funds, the industry earns billions of dollars managing investors funds. In most countries investors can choose between hundreds, if not thousands of different mutual funds. The industry and the financial press publishes performance tables which help to persuade investor to invest in highly ranked funds. These are rarely skilled funds and investors may well do better investing in an index tracker.
