TER

ETF: TER wars

In ETF Blog, Latest by Kristia van Heerden

If you’re a Just One Lap regular, you know we talk about fees a lot. As we explain in this post, a small percentage difference in fees can have a huge impact on how much your investment grows in time. In the ETF world, the total expense ratio (TER) can be the deciding factor between two similar ETFs. Satrix recently reduced the TER on the popular Satrix 40 ETF to just 0.1%. To celebrate, we’ve compiled a list of all South African ETFs, from the cheapest to the most expensive, below.
