(The minimum and maximum total Investment Portfolio Operating Expenses may be affected by voluntary or contractual waivers or expense reimbursements. These waivers and expense reimbursements will reduce the actual Total Portfolio Operating Expenses for the affected Investment Portfolios. Please refer to the underlying Investment Portfolio prospectuses for details about the specific expenses of each Investment Portfolio. The net numbers displayed above reflect the minimum and maximum charges after contractual waivers that have been committed through at least April 30, 2013. The gross numbers reflect the minimum and maximum charges without giving effect to the agreed upon waivers.)
sscritic wrote:So you understated the difference. I read your OP as comparing 0.02% to 0.29%, a difference of 0.27%. Your updated comparison, using total ER, is 0.31% to 0.59%, a difference of 0.28%. That extra 0.01% savings makes a difference.
