Fixed Income Management:
Standard Fee Comparison for Risk Pools/JPAs

As a resource for your risk pool/JPA, we've compared fixed income investment management fees, across various portfolio sizes, among managers in the insurance and risk pooling space. Whether conducting a search or routine due diligence, it is important to understand where your risk pool/JPA's fees fall within the industry landscape.

We've also included the fixed income management fee comparison from our proprietary Risk Pooling Peer Group Database. This peer group compares manager fees, as well as other key investment metrics. Risk Pool Peer Group Access can be requested here >>
