How Much Are Your Investments Really Costing You … Directly?

June 1, 2017 - 0 comments

Whether you’re buying groceries, hiring a plumber or investing your money in the stock market, it’s only natural that you want to know what you’re paying for, and whether you’re getting your money’s worth out of it.

Unfortunately, unlike the sticker price in store, it’s not always easy to examine all the costs involved in investing, especially if you want to compare one all-in strategy to another.

In today’s “No Dumb Questions” video, I’m going to cover three important direct investment costs to look for – including direct trading costs, Management Expense Ratios (MERs), and the advisory fee you’ll now find reported to you each year in dollars and cents. Next week, we’ll take on some of the indirect costs of investing and where to look for them. In a future video, I’ll also take an even closer look at what you can expect from your advisory fee these days.

But first things first. Ready to get a better handle on your direct costs of investing? Check out today’s video.
