But even if you can get 1% more return (after fees) at lower volatility, that doesn't mean you can bump your SWR from 4% to 5%.
I never suggested it would, I was merely trying to counter the statement that a 1% fee lowers the SWR without taking into account any other factors as was suggested here.
That 1% fee comes out no matter what. If comes out in years when you get 20% return, and it comes out in years when you get 50% loss.
Ideally, the likelihood of that 50% loss would be less, but you make a good point.
