  1. The asset-weighted average expense ratio across funds (excluding money market funds and funds of funds) was 0.61% in 2015, down from 0.64% in 2014 and 0.73% five years ago
  2. This decline stems from investor demand for cheaper passive funds (index funds and ETFs) and strong flows into institutional share classes, which carry lower fees
  3. 2015 saw the strongest inflows to institutional share classes through retirement platforms and to ETFs via fee-only advisors
