FlexFee™ Calculator

The FlexFee calculator allows you to play “What if...” You can pre-experience the impact of different investment performance scenarios on
investors’ expenses.

Make a few simple choices, and the calculator will show you how performance fees change as a strategy’s relative performance changes.

Accrued expenses through the investment start date were greater than the accrued expenses on the investment end date. Therefore, the investor realized an effective fee rate of 0.00%.
Total Expense Ratio (TER)
paid for the period
Keep in mind that the Strategy performance already assumes the deduction of the total expense ratio shown. Fees are deducted from the net asset value (NAV) of the Strategy daily.

The example shown is hypothetical, is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent the performance or fee of any specific investment, including any AllianceBernstein product. The hypothetical example is to demonstrate how different return patterns versus a benchmark would impact the total expense ratio of a strategy with a flexible fee structure. Scenarios like this would likely see the NAV appreciate or depreciate due to adjustments to the performance fee component of the expense ratio. An investor cannot invest directly in an index and its performance does not reflect the performance of any AllianceBernstein portfolio. The unmanaged index does not reflect fees and expenses associated with the active management of a portfolio.
