Considering the sentence:
Investor perception on active funds will be ______ too expensive.
I am struggling to find the right wording. The message is clear in my mind, but I can't make it clear with grammar or word choice. The above is the closest I got.
The message is supposed to be investors will think active funds will be too expensive. I just want to change it a bit so I use the smarty-pants phrase "investor perception." However, I can't seem to make the rest of the sentence coordinate.
Is there an appropriate word choice for this sentence and maintain a formal/professional tone?
Note: You may take slight creative liberties with the other portions of the sentence if need be.
