This is the AMC. It does not say the fund expenses - if the analysis showed the average TER or Ongoing Charge, what would be the number?

The true price of a fund is merely one aspect of selecting a platform provider. If we become obsessed by the odd basis point and ignore the quality and continued development of the newer solutions then I fear for us all.
