What’s an M1 Pie?

Pies are the building blocks of M1 portfolios. They contain your stocks and funds, or crypto. Create a Pie, or groups of Pies, to help you visualize and drive toward long-term financial goals.

Fine-tune your investing strategy

M1 Portfolio

A portfolio is a single M1 Brokerage Account. Each portfolio is made up of one or more Pies.


A Pie is a group of investments. Use them to organize your stocks and ETFs or crypto. Then, automate your strategy.


A Slice can contain an individual investment, another Pie, or even a group of Pies. Pies can contain up to 100 Slices.

2. Select “Choose Securities”.
3. Choose the stocks and/or ETFs to include in your Pie.
4. Enter the percentage allocation for each asset.
