Fees & Expenses
The total fee may vary slightly depending on the actual expenses of the funds in which the portfolios invest. Select the fee or expense name at the top of each column for a description. Additional fee information is listed following the table.
Fees & Expenses
1 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 15, 2019. The actual underlying fund expenses of a portfolio may vary from those shown in this table.
Underlying Fund Expenses
Each Learning Quest 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.
Program Management Fee
The program management fee is charged to a portfolio for expenses incurred, including the administration and management of the program. The fee is currently at an annual rate of 0.20%. It is charged against the assets of all the portfolios except the Cash and Cash Equivalents Portfolio and the 80%-10% Equity Index Portfolios.
Total Portfolio Fee
The total fee may be higher or lower depending on the amount of the underlying funds held by each portfolio and the actual expenses of those funds. The investment return of each portfolio will be net of the underlying fund expenses and the program management fee (if applicable), as described above.
The fees and expenses listed on this page are for accounts established directly with Learning Quest. You also may establish a Learning Quest college savings account through a financial advisor. Investing through an advisor may result in additional fees, please contact your financial advisor for more information.
