1. Mutual fund fees are a killer! And the worst is that some of those fees aren’t even readily apparent when you’re choosing your investment. The company I work for, FeeX, is an online tool that shows you the fees that are easy to miss when you pick your funds.

    And that’s a great tip on over-diversification as well — if you don’t pay enough attention to what’s really going on with your mutual funds, you end up with redundant, fee-overloaded investments.

    Thanks for the post!

    • I know with some mutual funds and the different classes of funds, finding the fee you are paying is downright difficult! That tool sounds like a great thing. I’ll have to check it out!

  2. Mutual funds can be so difficult to understand and like the previous comment if you don’t take notice of the fees you could be losing out on potential income. Thanks for such a useful article that will help clarify mutual funds for those who have yet to test the water by investing in a great option.
