20 Largest Mutual Funds

The table below lists the 20 largest mutual funds. These funds manage close to $1 trillion in assets among them.

American funds make up almost half of the largest 20 funds. A total of 9 American fund family funds make the list. The Fidelity funds occupy 5 spots in the top 20 funds. The Vanguard fund family adds 4 funds to this list. The Dodge & Cox and Pimco each add one fund to the list.

The Pimco total return fund is the only bond fund. The Fidelity Low priced stock is the only fund, which hold mainly small cap stocks; most of the funds hold large cap stocks in the portfolio.

All American family funds are load funds. The remaining 11 funds are no load funds. The Pimco Total Return (PTTRX) is the institutional class fund, that’s why it is listed as a no load fund. The investor class fund of the Pimco Total Return (PTTAX) is a load fund, but it does not make this list.

It may be interesting to compare this data to a list of the biggest funds from 5 years ago, if such data is easily obtainable

I like American Funds and its conservative style. I currently have CAIBX and CWGIX, although I'm buying them at NAV. I'd never pay a load on a fund.
