    One of the most revealing charts you have ever published. Remarkable.

    According to BlackRock, a couple of the iShares small cap funds — IWO and IWM — offset more than 100% of their management fee with securities lending revenue.

    Securities lending is probably part of the explanation for Vanguard funds with miniscule fees of 0.04% and 0.05%. It’s a race to the bottom!

    Just kidding. Securities lending is collateralized, so the risk of loss should be low.
