One of these days, when I run across Trotsky's above line in his writings and know its context, I will let you know.

Mine is kind of high (0.44%) because I have a pretty high percent international and a high percent of funds that are wrapped by an insurance company (adds 0.29%). The guaranteed income fund in my 401k which has my entire bond allocation right now is 0.37% (that includes explicit annual 401k fees too). Several of my international iShares ETF's are in the 0.48% range. I know I could shop around and get out of the iShares, but haven't done it due to the pain associated with getting my rather annoyingly complex asset allocation back in line and making all of that work across his and hers tIRA, Roth IRA, HSA, 401K (lots of non-minglables).

My overall is .14%. The vast majority are in Vanguard Lifestyle Moderate. I could manually split out those 4 funds in each of our retirement accounts and get it down to .06%, but have decided it's not really worth it.

I made a couple of changes and have dropped my ER from the original .28 to .19. Swapped Fidelity Balanced for a Vanguard target date fund that meets my AA requirements. Also moved small cap funds.

It occurred to me that although I could probably save another few basis points I’ll hold that for the next time I get nervous about the market. Gives me something to satisfy that “I have to do something” itch.

Per Vanguard Portfolio Watch, we are at .08%. This is for mutual funds which are 78% of our investments. The rest is individual stocks and rental property.
