Yeah. But not THAT much higher. 1% fee out of 4% SWR is 25% of your income going to him. 1% fee out of 5% SWR is 20%. That's still a lot.

Perhaps I'm not phrasing this correctly. Why are you subtracting the 1% from the SWR IF the return after that 1% is removed is higher than the portfolio used to determine the SWR is higher? This makes no sense to me.

I'll confirm the historical performance, but I don't understand how a higher return, lower volatility portfolio after fees would net a lower SWR.
