A turnover ratio is the percentage of stocks and other assets in a mutual fund that have been replaced over the course of a year. This number can vary depending on the type of mutual fund, its investment goals, and the portfolio manager’s investing approach. Assessing mutual funds through this metric is valuable in determining which ones are suitable for inclusion in your investment portfolio.

The mutual fund turnover ratio can affect how much you spend on owning the fund. When the turnover ratio is high, you might end up paying more for things like brokerage fees and bid-ask spreads. You can locate the turnover ratio in the mutual fund company’s most recent financial statement. It usually falls somewhere between 0% and 100%, though for actively managed funds, it can be even higher. A turnover rate of 0% means that the fund’s investments haven’t changed at all over the past year.
