What is an example of the cost of investment?

An example of the cost of investment is the fees that an investor pays to purchase and maintain an investment. For example, when an investor buys shares of a mutual fund or an exchange-traded fund (ETF), they typically pay a management fee, which is a percentage of the total assets invested in the fund. The management fee covers the cost of the investment manager's services and other expenses related to operating the fund.

Another example of the cost of investment is the commission fees charged by a broker for buying or selling securities. These fees can vary depending on the type of security being traded, the broker's fee structure, and the size of the transaction.
