Holding Turnover is calculated by adding up all the transactions for the year, dividing it by 2 and then dividing it again by the fund total holdings. Holding Turnover is the rate at which funds or ETFs replace their investment holdings on an annual basis. In other words it measures how quickly a fund turns over its holdings during the fiscal year.

Conversely, if the fund is passively managed and the holdings turnover is low, that could indicate a less expensive expense ratio, saving you money in the long run.

When looking at these funds, you can see the holdings and what makes the product, giving you an idea if this is a good fit.
