A mutual fund expense ratio is a management fee combined with 12b-1 fees that a fund charges to investors. Fees can vary depending on the type and style of fund. They can range from being less than 1% to well over 4%. The average ratio found is 1.38 so anything less than that is considered cheap. Shopping around at different brokers is recommended to find the right mutual fund at a fair price to invest in.
