Investing fees are not always easy to spot. Wall Street has done a good job burying these fees in the small print of hundreds of pages of prospectus. If they fully disclosed their compensation, investors might balk. This post will explain some of the hidden fees that investors don’t always see.
There are many types of hidden fees, many of which I haven’t even found yet. But some of the typical hidden fees include transaction fees (commissions), internal expense ratios, trading costs, and believe it or not, taxes.
