Investors' Cost Consciousness on the Rise

A recent Vanguard analysis of Morningstar data reveals that funds with lower expense ratios increasingly are receiving a greater share of investor dollars.  Vanguard's "whitepaper" about its analysis is here:  Costs matter: Are fund investors voting with their feet?

401(k) plan sponsors and plan participants are gravitating to low cost funds, too:  Mutual fund costs for 401(k) plans still dropping.  A new Department of Labor fees disclosure rule and pending lawsuits may also be contributing to the positive trends affecting 401(k) plans:  see Limiting the 401(k) Finder's Fee.


  1. Businesses are coming back to their original way of working after a long pause due to Covid-19, I have been reading about the affects caused by Covid in the business sector for the HND business assignments and the results are not satisfactory because it has caused much damage already.


  2. As investors become more cost conscious, they are increasingly turning to investing strategies that seek to minimize fees and expenses. This is especially true of younger investors, who are more likely to be fee-sensitive than their older counterparts. In my College Assignment I also give some writing stratigies and tips to students.
