What Is the Total Expense Ratio (TER)?

The total expense ratio (TER) is a metric that measures the entire costs of administering and maintaining an investment vehicle, such as a mutual fund. Management fees and other operational expenditures, such as trading fees, legal fees, auditor fees, and other operational expenses, make up the majority of these costs.
The entire cost of the fund is divided by the total assets of the fund to get the TER, which is expressed as a percentage. The net expense ratio (TER) is also known as the after-reimbursement expense ratio.
