+ What is a "bps?"
"bps," pronounced "bips," is short for "basis points." There are 100bps in 1.0%.
The investment industry expresses annual interest rates and management fees in terms of bps. For example, AlphaGlider's annual advisory fee for $200,000 in managed funds is 50bps, which translates into $1,000 (0.5% x $200,000 = $1,000).
