Fee Calculations, Performance Measurement, And Other Quantitative Issues
WHY IT MATTERS
The fees incurred by investors represent a significant cost and therefore have a material impact on net returns. Fee structures can be complex and even seemingly simple structures can often have hidden complexities.
Bard Consulting has performed approximately 200 in-depth asset management and incentive fee reviews since 2012.
