Mosaic Funds' Rich EisingerAlong with Jay Sekelsky, Rich Eisinger co-manages two great offerings from the Mosaic family of funds: The large-cap blend ( MINVX) Mosaic Investors fund and the ( GTSGX) Mosaic Mid-Cap fund. These value-oriented funds tend to trail the sprinters during the bull runs but crush the competition during the rough patches. That's led to impressive performance over the long haul. The Mid-Cap fund's five-year average annual return of 11.89% is good for the top 22% of its peers, while the Investors fund's 3.89% five-year average annual return ranks in the top 12% of all large-cap blend funds, according to Morningstar. 1.
