What is the average expense ratio on the portfolio?

An expense ratio is the cost that a fund provider charges to manage the fund and cover its operational expenses. The fees are usually stated and charged as a percentage of assets (i.e., ratio). Don’t worry – you aren’t responsible for paying this fee out of pocket, or separating it from your investment in the fund. The fee is applied against the value of your investment and is taken out of the assets of your funds.

The portfolio’s expense ratio is calculated as the weighted average of the expense ratios of the funds that are in the portfolio. Since we launched Smart Portfolio in March 2021, the overall expense ratios have remained under 0.065%.



A “Smart Portfolio” is a Discretionary Managed account whereby Stash has full authority to manage.
