It is always important to compare apples to apples. With which platform are you buying each under? D series would be more comparable for a self-directed account where you are not paying for advisory services. (DIY)
Series F are still advisor series funds which come with advice. An ETF fee comes with no advice above, if you hold it with an advisor, you may not get one with this average fee, plus there would be an account fee. Apples to apples.

Interesting that a mutual fund fee of 0.98% was used. I’m pretty sure the average Canadian mutual fund has fees around the 2.3%.
