What is an ETF?

Investing

You want to make your money work for you, right? Sure, you can let it sit in a checking account forever, but if you want to really make that cash put on a suit and clock in for you 9 to 5 (so to speak), investing is your friend. 401(k)s, IRAs, brokerage accounts, 457s, 529s, health savings accounts — there are plenty of ways that investing can get you more bang for your buck.

Here at FeeHacks, we’re into investing: not just the act of investing your money into mutual funds, index funds, ETFs and more that will help grow your nest egg and help you retire in style, but also investing time in finding out if you could be paying less in fees.

Lucky for you, you actually don’t have to invest that much time in the fee-finding part. Sure, you could dig through a prospectus for an investment, strap a magnifying glass to your face, and see if you can locate that crucial “exp. ratio” in all the technical mumbo-jumbo, but why waste that time when you could spend three minutes on FeeX? That’s how long it takes to sign up for free, link an investment account, and find out exactly how much you’re paying in fees—not to mention other options where you can invest elsewhere to pay less in fees.
