The investment seeks to maximize total return, consistent with prudent investment management. The fund is intended for investors seeking professional management of a comprehensive asset allocation strategy for retirement savings. It seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing under normal circumstances substantially all of its assets in Institutional Class or Class M shares of any funds of the PIMCO Equity Series and PIMCO Funds, and in other affiliated funds, including funds of PIMCO ETF Trust, except funds of funds, and unaffiliated funds that are registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
The investment seeks to provide for retirement outcomes based on quantitatively measured risk. The fund is a "feeder" fund that invests all of its assets in the Master Portfolio, a series of Master Investment Portfolio ("MIP") with a substantially identical investment objective, which allocates and reallocates its assets among a combination of equity and bond index funds and money market funds (the "underlying funds") in proportions based on its own comprehensive investment strategy.

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
