When it comes to picking the best Fidelity mutual funds, there's no universal answer to which option is at the top of the list. Investing always involves a level of personalization based on your personal risk profile, your investment timeline and how much capital you have in the bank.

That said, there are some general rules of thumb that can quickly separate the good from the bad. And the following options are among the best Fidelity mutual funds because of these characteristics.

You should always do your own research and make sure you're investing based on what's best for your personal situation. However, the following nine investments all are standouts that might work for you if you're looking for the best Fidelity mutual funds right now.
