Importance of Costs

Posted on 01/06/2009. Filed under: hidden costs of investment |

In this article Morningstar have coommented on the importance of costs on fund performance. This is a subject about which I have made a number of posts (see: Hidden Cost of Investment posted here in March 2008.

Investors should be wary of excessive costs. Not just the TER (which is the total published expenses of the fund) but also the effect of portfolio turnover as this is not disclosed in a way that is easy for most investors to understand and can act as a significant break on performance.
