Each year Lipper produces its "Quick Guide to Fund Expenses." The report consists of a single table displaying the asset-weighted average and average total expense ratios by load-type (front-end load/no-load, institutional, and back-end load/level-load), fund type (actively managed funds, index funds, exchange-traded funds, and funds of funds), and Lipper classifications/objectives.

The table is designed to do exactly as the name entails—the reader should be able to compare quickly expenses across these different fund types.
