    Hi All

    I've been looking at trustnet and researching into the top performing sectors followed by the best performing funds within those, however there are variances in the fees as you'd expect.

    Wanted some advice from the more experienced members, are there any calculators or websites which let you work out the returns after you take into account all the fees? at the moment looks like some funds perform slightly better but the higher fees could make you worse off.

    Apologies if this sounds like a basic question I'm still learning the ins and outs before I invest..

    Thanks

    The returns shown on Trustnet are after the fund fees have been taken into account.

    The platform on which you hold funds will of course have its own charging structure, and those fees will have to be factored in to calculate your personal return.

    Ah, theres a lot of information on trustnet so I must have missed that!

    Are there any other websites you would recommend besides trustnet? goal is to find the best fund for my needs, will also compare to trackers, at the moment funds seem to be winning for me based on 5 year returns i've seen on the top sectors on trustnet.

    Apart from ETFs most index trackers are funds. I'd get this straight in your head before looking at fees
