  2. The Fund CR (Commission Ratio) is derived by dividing the brokerage commissions paid by the fund into a fund's average net assets. Brokerage commission expense is the only transaction expense that can be quantified. Additional transaction costs, such as spread costs and market impact costs, must be estimated.
