Fee cost: 43 bp on $250,000.

A trade cost of $20-$50 PER fund bought to get started,I will use an average of $30 a trade, because I know I and most other firms can do that.

So, your $250,000 costs $330 to buy the funds, the ER is $950 a year, and the ongoing management fee (wrap fee) is $1075. You paid $2355 to get "started", and ongoing of 81bp forever ($2025) a year.........

And a lot of you are excited about it, even though you have your money in VG at ER ratios of under 30bp?? You guys make me smile............

LOL! Classic!
