A1 For purposes of this table, underlying fund expenses are calculated using the expense ratio of each fund, taking into account any applicable reductions due to fee waivers. Expense ratios are determined from the underlying fund's most recent shareholder report. Such expense ratios are then multiplied by the portfolio's expected underlying holdings as of July 22, 2016. The actual underlying fund expenses of a portfolio may vary from those shown in this table.

Underlying Fund Expenses

Each Learning Quest Advisor portfolio realizes its pro-rata share (weighted average) of the fees and expenses of the underlying funds in which it invests. The amount of the underlying fund expense charged to a portfolio is based on the amount of each fund held and the expense ratio of that fund. In the case of portfolios that have only one underlying fund, the expense realized is the annual operating expense of the one underlying fund.
