Frequently Asked Questions

First, with the enhanced liquidity fund, we are using an institutional share class that has lower total expense ratio (annual fee charged by the ELF's fund manager) than the retail share class available on FSM or anywhere else. So, we give you access to the ELF at a lower cost.

Second, we return all rebates from the enhanced liquidity fund and money market fund back to you. Most other platforms and fund managers don't do this.
