Fee Analyzer FAQs

What is the Investment Metrics Fee Analyzer?

Investment Metrics has a wealth of actual post-negotiated fee data stored in our performance reporting and measurement platforms. This data allows you to analyze actual fees for custom mandate size ranges. The Investment Metrics Fee Analyzer tool provides the ability to create fee universes at all levels of the asset class hierarchy and compare multiple asset classes and individual styles. You can view universes across all dimensions and by plan type. Our data is the most comprehensive in the industry, covering all plan types, not just pension funds.

Where does the fee data come from?

Actual fee data is extracted off of our reporting platform containing over 20,000 institutional plans and over 500,00 portfolios. The data is anonymized and loaded into an online platform to provide managers and institutional investors the ability to filter and view actual fee data across many different dimensions.

Why is post negotiated fee information important?

Post negotiated fee data allows you to better understand the actual fees institutional investors are paying for asset management. Using our solutions, you have the ability to understand and compare the ‘stated’ fees in relation to ‘actual’ fees with the ability to understand whether discounts in fees are being offered.

What’s the coverage of your fee data?

We currently cover the United States across all plan types. Investment Metrics covers over 20,000 institutional plans, over 500,000 portfolios, and over $10T AUM flowing through their reporting platform.

How do I access your fee data?

Our manager fee data is fully integrated within our Investment Metrics Analytics Platform (Market Insights). This comprehensive interactive tool allows you and your team to complete in-depth research and better understand true asset manager fees.

How does Investment Metrics get this data?

Fee data is widely used by the institutional investment community to calculate and report on individual portfolio performance. This requires that accurate post negotiated fee schedules are loaded in our platform to accurately calculate net performance and reconcile to manager and custodial statements. Actual fee data is then pulled from our reporting platform, anonymized and loaded into an online platform to provide users the ability to filter and view actual fee data across many dimensions.
