ETF Fees Question

7 May 2009
Hey all, this might be a real noob question but:

When I buy an ETF and it has fees, does this mean that I'll be charged for them? As in, I'll have to pay extra? Or does the fee automatically come out of the share price? I don't wanna say use all my money to buy an ETF and then get hit by a fee I have no cash to pay!

When you buy an ETF you will be charged a brokerage fee from your broker to buy and sell. The ongoing management fee is taken out by the Fund manager from the fund itself, you don't actually have to pay extra but you still pay for it from within the fund, hope that helps.
