Don't Overlook These Hidden ETF Costs

Expense ratios represent the most apparent fees, but they are by no means the only costs borne by exchange-traded fund investors.

Mentioned:

Christine Benz: Hi, I'm Christine Benz for Morningstar.com. Many exchange-traded fund investors assume that finding the lowest-cost ETF boils down to expense ratios. But Morningstar's Ben Johnson, director of global ETF research, believes that investors should look beyond that headline number. He's here with me to discuss some research on that topic.

Ben, thank you so much for being here.
