Performance Fee Structures Within Mutual Funds

Greg Meier

Vice President, Strategist, US Capital Markets Research and Strategy - Allianz Global Investors




A performance fulcrum fee is a fee structure that varies the management fee of a fund based on investment performance relative to a stated performance hurdle. Performance will be tested versus the stated performance hurdle on an ongoing rolling basis. The management fee will then be adjusted over time. Generally, if the investment performance of the fund exceeds the performance hurdle, the management fee will increase to reflect strong investment performance. Inversely, if performance of the fund lags the performance hurdle, the management fee will decrease. During this session Mr. Meier will discuss performance fulcrum fees, how they work, and what the advantages of performance fulcrum fees are.  


Learning Objectives:

  • Symmetrical structure of performance fees attractive value proposition to clients
  • How fulcrum fees could provide a solution to fee pressure and the rise of passive investing as investors grow increasingly skeptical of paying active management fees for index-like performance
  • Symmetrical structure disincentives porfolio managers to take excess risk
