Compare fund costs

You can't control the markets or a fund's performance, but you can control what you pay to invest. Controlling costs is smart, because costs reduce your net investment returns.

Use this tool to compare two funds, see how their costs could erode returns, and find out how much more the higher-cost fund would have to return to outperform the lower-cost fund.

Before investing, always consider whether a fund is appropriate for your financial goals and understand its investment objectives, strategies, and risks. You should also check the reputation of the investment advisor and learn what account services are available for the fund.
