Fixed Income Management: Standard Fee Comparison

As a resource for your organization, 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 insurer or risk pool's fees fall within the industry landscape.

These standard fee schedules and comparisons were compiled from SAA's proprietary database of investment-grade fixed income managers with insurance specialization, called Manager Select. Insurers and Risk Pools can access Manager Select as part of InsurerCIO's complimentary membership. Database Access can be requested here >>

Manager Select provides fee estimates for each firm (based on their submitted fee schedule and portfolio size), as well as an overview of performance, organizational structure, investment philosophy, and much more.
