Annual Fund Operating Expenses
The cost that a mutual fund or other investment company incurs for maintaining proper records, printing financial statements, and otherwise maintaining operations. Annual fund operating expenses sometimes include marketing costs as well. Most investment companies assess a fee to cover these expenses. This fee is separate and distinct from the load (or sales fee). See also: Management fee.
