Directory of mutual funds

You recently noted an address for money-market mutual funds. I would like a list or directory of mutual funds for equities and bonds. Can you help? M. F.

Two sources for information on mutual funds are: Investment Company Institute , 1775 K Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006, and the No-Load Mutual Fund Association, Valley Forge, Pa. 19481. Both of these trade associations publish a directory of members with a code or other notation indicating the type of each fund -- equity, managed, bond, income, tax-exempt, money-market, or other fund. The NoLoad Mutual Fund Association also provides information in the directory on the minimum initial purchase and minimum subsequent additions. Money magazine also lists the addresses for a small selection of different funds. None of these sources provide any rating of funds. To check on past performance, you should select several funds and write for a prospectus. Or the Mutual Funds Almanac, published annually by the Hirsch Organization, 6 Deer Trail, Old TAppan , N.J. 97675, provides a condensed history of performance for over 600 mutual funds.

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
