Investment Metrics releases latest research on Active Management Fee Review 2017

By Mark Bell

Investment Metrics has released their latest research – Active Management Fee Review 2017 – which highlights that the pressure to lower active management fees became more persistent in 2017.

Key highlights from this report include:

– Most peer groups outperforming their benchmark over the long-term, gross-of-fees, but not by a significant margin
– These active return levels have decreased over the past two years
– The squeeze on fees has not differentiated itself by portfolio type
– The pressure is being felt by both fundamental and quantitative asset managers, as well as by emerging and small-cap equity managers
