To set the percentage value that your search for enter that value without the percentage sign; 1% would be 1.0 , 50 basis points or 1/2 of 1 percent would be .50

Use this field to set an upper limit to your search. Used in combination with the first "Range" field you can search for a band of results such as; find all the policies with a Total Net Asset Charge of 1.0 to 1.20%

Use their field to set an upper limit to your search.

You may rank your results in either descending or ascending order.
