Display fund costs for ETFs

Display an ETF’s costs somewhere sensible - very useful for long term investors since cost has an effect on return.

Bonus: be able to sort/filter the Discover tab by cost.

(This has been discussed a few times but I don’t think it has ever been an “Idea”.)

Indeed. Morningstar did an analysis of (open ended) funds (I’ve no doubt ETFs would behave the same way), and the number 1 predictor of the best performing funds long term was simply which had the lower fees.

It was a better predictor than their own “star” rating system.

This is a glaring omission from the Finki API … I’ll add it today… I’ll add the latest available OCFs for both ETFs and Investment Trusts … Transaction costs might be a little tougher but can look to add longer term if anyone actually cares… but simple Ocfs should suffice for now…
