Question: when you get a chart of a unit trust or IT performance over time, does that include the effect of costs and fees? I'm assuming it does, because it quotes market prices over time, which must have those built in. But I recently read that sometimes fund managers quote performance stats without fees. I'm particularly thinking of when you're using services like FETrustnet or Google finance. ThanksMatt
Matt,Yes, management and transaction fees are accounted for in charts. The charts graph net asset value per share, and to arrive at net asset value management and transaction fees are subtracted.Mike
You are correct that the charts show and track the price of the security so any costs that come out of the price would be accounted for. This is basically the expense ratio, 12b1 fees, and transaction costs. Other costs such as purchase or redemption loads or account fees are not reflected in the charts.
