An adjective that describes statistical elements, assumptions,
and techniques used by actuaries. An "actuary" is an expert who
computes insurance or pension risks and plan costs based upon plan
membership, experience, and other factors. Actuaries determine the
level of funding required to provide the benefits promised to you under
the Florida Retirement System.
The current fees an investment fund charges to cover management, operating and marketing expenses. Actual fees are proportional to the amount you invest in that fund. For example, if the annual fee for a $10,000 investment in a fund is $2 but you only invest $1,000, you would be charged ($1,000 ÷ $10,000) x $2, or 20 cents for a year. Fees may change in the future. Fees and expenses are only one of several factors that you should consider when making investment decisions.
