100 Lowest Expense Ratio ETFs – Cheapest ETFs

If all else is equal, an exchange-traded fund's expense ratio is often times the deciding factor when it comes to investing. A fund's expense ratio is the measure of the cost to run the fund. These operating expenses are taken out of the ETF's assets, thus lowering the return for the investors. The lower the expense ratio, the lower the cost of fund ownership. Here are the 100 exchange-traded funds with the lowest expense ratios in the industry. If you're curious, you may also wish to peruse our list of the 100 ETFs with the higest expense ratios.
