The investment seeks to provide income and capital growth. The fund is a "fund of funds" and invests only in the shares of other Russell Investment Company Funds (the "underlying funds"). It is intended for investors who have reached retirement age and are no longer contributing to their retirement savings. The allocation of the fund's assets to the underlying funds in which it invests is approximately 27.1% to equity underlying funds, 66.3% to fixed income underlying funds and 6.6% to alternative underlying funds.
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 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 in proportions based on its own comprehensive investment strategy. It will invest, at least 80% of its assets in securities or other financial instruments that are components of or have economic characteristics similar to the securities included in its custom benchmark index.
The investment seeks total return through a combination of current income and capital appreciation. The fund is designed to provide diversification among different asset classes by investing the majority of its assets in other MFS mutual funds, referred to as underlying funds. Within the stock fund allocations, MFS seeks to diversify globally (by including domestic and international underlying funds), in terms of market capitalization (by including large, mid, and small capitalization underlying funds) and by style. Within the bond fund allocation, MFS includes underlying funds with varying degrees of interest rate and credit exposure.

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.
