These fund managers aced the decade. Is yours among them?

With many retirement accounts in tatters, plenty of Americans are content with the fund managers who managed to keep them from losing too much money during the worst market conditions since the Great Depression. But it turns out, a select few investing pros have done much better, actually producing exceptional returns -- in some cases more than 200% in cumulative returns -- over a most challenging decade.

Independent research firm Morningstar (MORN) has compiled a list of 15 fund managers who really pulled it off. The managers of these funds have navigated through two recessions and out-performed other funds in their categories, producing cumulative returns over the decade ranging between 45% and 233%. While past success is no guarantee of success in the future, investors may want to take note of these winners as they plan their investments for the next decade.
