ETF or mutual fund?

ETFs and mutual funds are both diversified, professionally managed investments. But there are differences in how they're priced and traded.

Expense ratio

A mutual fund's annual operating expenses, expressed as a percentage of the fund's average net assets. It's calculated annually and removed from the fund's earnings before they're distributed to investors, directly reducing investors' returns.

An expense ratio includes management, administrative, marketing, and distribution fees. It doesn't include loads or purchase or redemption fees.
