Direct Plan Fees And Expenses
You can easily compare the expenses of different investment options here. To help you navigate, here are some definitions:
Underlying Fund Expenses: charged by mutual fund managers; generally higher for actively managed funds and lower for index funds.
Portfolio Accounting & Administration Fee: funds the complex management of the unit trusts that hold the actual underlying funds as explained in the offering statement.
OTTA Fee: since the Plan receives no taxpayer funding, this provides the operating budget for Ohio’s 529 Direct Plan.
Record-Keeping Fee: ensures compliance with the complex federal requirements governing 529 Plans.
Investment Performance For All Options
This shows performance details for each investment option in different timeframes. Some definitions to help navigate:
Benchmark: Each investment has a performance measure called a benchmark, however we show performance after fees and expenses (net performance) so it’s normal for the investment to trail the benchmark slightly.
Inception Date: When the investment became available in our Direct Plan, not necessarily when the underlying mutual fund was started.
Performance Displayed: Results are annualized, not cumulative; N/A means the fund hasn’t been in the Plan long enough to show results for that timeframe.
Life of Fund: Performance from the inception date to the most reporting date.
NOTE: As the Vanguard Ohio Target Enrollment Portfolios and 2042 Advantage Age-Based Portfolio were launched on March 21, 2022, and August 1, 2022, respectively, their YTD investment performance data will not be available until a later date. This is in compliance with CFA Institute Investment Performance Standards as well as OTTA’s investment policy of focusing on longer term performance.
