DFA funds UK ?

I posted this to bogleheads, still waiting for replies there. I thought I would crosspost it here as well to get opinions from knowledgeable folks here.

didnt want to cut/paste the whole post here, hence just a link :
Bogleheads :: View topic - DFA funds UK - anyone ?!

Essentially the question is : How much would you pay in expenses for DFA funds before it no longer represents value for money ? I found an advisor in UK with 1% advisory fees, 0.57% custodial fees (after 2nd year), and 0.47% DFA fund expenses.

In UK, I think we dont have ETFs to cover every single asset class that DFA provides [unlike Vanguard in US which has just about every asset class].

Anyone ?!

Sorry I tend to write lengthy. Was never good at summary writing in school.

Would like to hear from people on what's the max one should pay as fees/expenses for DFA funds ?

Unlike in US, I am unable to replicate DFA fund portfolios using index funds / ETFs.
