Technological innovation is shaping the world we live in more than ever before. It's affecting nearly every industry and is only anticipated to accelerate.

Innovation presents big opportunities for growth, which is why tech stocks have the potential to be such great investments.

Consider Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) stock performance over the last 10 years. It experienced an increase in stock price of 1,647 percent since the introduction of the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch, among other popular products.

This is a best-case scenario, as stocks can swing the other way with performance, as well. For instance, the once high-flying Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) stock is down over 62 percent since its high in December 2014.

For those interested in investing in tech, but not wanting to gamble on the next big winner (or loser) in the space, a diversified mutual fund, which holds a basket of stocks rather than just one or two, can be a better choice. To make the process of selecting a fund easier, Credio has compiled a list of the 17 best-performing tech mutual funds based on 10-year, load-adjusted returns.
