State of Institutional Fees Report


Comparing fees across strategies and regions is not a simple task. This report organizes management fee data, exploring the current landscape of separate account fees and the differences in actual fees paid by public plan investors versus managers’ stated fees across multiple structures.

Investors can use the report to gauge what they can expect to pay based on the amount they are seeking to allocate. Asset managers will find utility in understanding what competitors are listing as their fees and actually charging investors.

Included are the stated management fees of 8,899 separate account structures from within eVestment’s Analytics platform, and 377 cases of actual fees paid by public plans and their corresponding managers’ stated fee comparisons, using documents uploaded to eVestment Market Lens.

In this report:

  • Average separate account management fees reported to eVestment across Americas, Global and Multi-Region, EMEA and APAC equity and fixed income strategies
  • Average management fees on allocations up to $250mm and the distribution of stated fees at $50mm
  • Comparisons of actual management fees paid by public plan investors to manager-reported fees on the eVestment platform across multiple account structures
  • Differences between manager stated fees
