Total Cost Reporting
The investment funds industry supports regulatory initiatives that provide investors with important information before and after they purchase their investments. This information strengthens investor understanding and confidence.
Providing investors with more complete cost information related to the investment funds they hold is the ultimate goal for regulators and the industry. IFIC strongly supports expanding cost reporting to include costs related to fund management and operating expenses. IFIC believes the best way to both accomplish this goal and reduce the risk of investor confusion is to include fund expenses in the annual report of costs and performance.
IFIC will continue to provide industry input and work closely with our members and regulators on all aspects of the implementation of Total Cost Reporting.
