News Summary: Schwab touts 401(k) plan fee savings

By The Associated Press

LOWER FEES: Schwab Retirement Plan Services says that employees who enrolled in an all-index fund 401(k) plan launched by the company about a year ago saw the expenses on their funds drop nearly 80 percent.

THE NUMBERS: Fund expenses for investors in the plan fell 77 percent to $14.78 per $10,000 invested. Prior to transitioning to an all-index fund approach, the weighted-average operating expense ratio on these investors' 401(k) plans was $65.11 per $10,000 invested.

HOW IT WORKS: Index funds seek to match the market by tracking an index. Their fees are lower than actively managed funds.
