The advisory explains what expense ratios are; how they are calculated; how they are affected by a fund’s management style, investment strategy and portfolio size; and important considerations for investors.
“Expense ratios are an important element for investors to consider, along with a fund’s risk/return profile, when comparing funds,” NDBF Deputy Director Claire McHenry said.
