National Webinar - Manager Fees and the - Value for Money- Equation

September 26, 2019 1:00 PM to 2:00 PMOnline - Eastern Time Zone
Area of Interest: Investments Format: Web

Investment fees matter for two reasons. One is well known: fees reduce clients’ returns. But this is not the only effect they have—fees also influence your investment manager’s decisions. Lately, institutions from the UK regulator to academic researchers to the world’s largest pension fund have started to pay more attention to the importance of fee structures (not just fee levels). That focus should be welcomed by investors. By developing a better understanding of different fee structures and the incentives they create, we believe clients can improve their chance of finding managers who can deliver long-term value for money.

In this presentation we take a deep dive into investment management fees, exploring the benefits and drawbacks of various fee structures (including lesser known “refundable fees”), and the implications they each have for investors. We also question whether the industry thinks about fees in the right way and introduce the very simple, but rarely discussed, “value for money” equation. With a better understanding of fees, investors (and their managers) can focus on what ultimately matters most—value for their money.

Attend to:
• Understand how major fee structures work, including the pros and cons of each
• Be able to predict how a fee structure will affect returns in different environments
• Be able to apply the “value for money” equation when comparing active manager fees
• Be better positioned to ask investment managers important questions about the incentives created by their fee structures
