The "average" expense ratio for a fund will vary widely based on the type of fund it is. An index fund will have a much lower expense ration than an actively managed fund. Global/international funds will have higher expense ratios. Different share classes of the same fund will ahve different expense ratios. In many (especially larger) 401(k) plans, the funds available may include institutionally priced (lower) funds... Check out Morningstar (or others) that will provide you with the category average, or ranking for various funds.What's "reasonable" is a different matter entirely. If a fund returns 100% per year (yea, right), I wouldn't mind paying a 500 basis point (5%)expense ratio. If it returns a more normal return, I would expect the expenses to be more normal.
