Investing in big and established companies is a good option for risk-averse investors. Such companies are generally less volatile but offer comparatively lower returns as well. However, you can overcome this limitation through value investing in big companies. This means investing in big companies that are deemed to be undervalued. One of the best ways to invest in such companies is through Large Value funds. Such funds normally invest in big U.S. stocks that are less expensive or are witnessing slower growth than large-cap stocks. Let’s take a look at the top ten large value mutual funds.
