Hello,

I'm hoping someone can tell me if 7/10's of 1% is 7 basis points. I find the use of basis points confusing. Folks seem to slip from bpts. to fracions of percents readily.

the largest holding is 7/10ths of 1 % of the portfolio...

The exposure is 40 basis points....


Thanks in advance,

LadyGay

Greetings LadyGay,

Nope, .7% is 70 basis points. 100 basis points = 1% if you want to make conversions.

HTH,
JB
