Are ETF Fees Headed For Zero?

News summary by MFWire's editors

Fundsters interested in the ongoing price war on the indexed side of the business, especially in ETFs, may want to look at the special monthly investing in funds section in the Wall Street Journal. Today Jonathan Burton reports on that continuing battle between giants like iShares [see profile], Schwab [see profile] State Street [see profile] and Vanguard [see profile].

In particular, the WSJ notes the curious case of the Deutsche Bank db x-trackers Euro Stoxx 50 ETF, a European product paid for by securities lending, thanks to an expense ratio of zero. The paper wonders if broad-market ETFs here in the U.S. will eventually cost nothing, too.

Schwab vice president Tamara Boehlig, Morningstar ETF research director Scott Burns, senior Vanguard investment strategist Joel Dickson, U.S. iShares distribution chief Jennifer Grancio, advisor Harold Evensky, IndexUniverse editor-in-chief Matt Hougan, State Street ETF chief Jim Ross and Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors editor Dan Wiener all weighed in for the article.
