iShares Exchange-Traded Funds - ETF Fees and Expenses
Investing in ETFs incurs some costs for the investors who besides commissions, spreads and other market related costs must also pay for the fund expenses which include portfolio management, administration and other various costs.
Depending on the exchange traded funds you are investing in, funds costs can greatly vary. Note that an ETF funds are usually much less expensive than managed mutual funds.
Fees and expenses for iShares ETFs are available for download on the iShares ETFs website. This data is retrieved by this downloader and stored in a custom database "iShares_fees". The following fields are created and filled with the corresponding data:
Management Fees (fees): This is the cost of managing the exchange traded fund. Investors should pay these fees to compensate the time and expertise of the manager. Management fees are based on a percentage of assets under management.
Acquired Fund Fees & Expenses (Fund_Fees_Expenses): These are fees and expenses charged by the fund manager. These fees and expenses are expressed in a percentage of the fund share price.
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (total_expenses): Expressed as a percentage of the average net assets of a fund, the total annual fund operating expenses include management fees and acquired fund fees and expenses.
Fee Waivers (fee_waivers): Fee waivers are aimed at reducing the overall expense ratio for an investor. Fee waivers are available in new funds and they usually expire in one or two years. Here is an example: A newly created ETF has a net expense ratio of 0.2% and a fee waiver of 0.05%. After the fee waiver expires and in case it is not extended by the fund manager, the fund costs will rise to 0.25%.
Net Expenses (net_expenses): This is the net expenses of the exchange traded fund. It is the total annual fund operating expenses minus the fee waivers.
