Current Trends in Management Fees and Performance Compensation: Tackling the terms, tax and administrative issues


Fee terms remain an important focus for all investors with continued pressure on management fees and increased complexity around performance compensation formulas.  As many managers work to accommodate the ever-evolving fee models in the market, consideration needs to be had to the overall impact these models can have on the fund's accounting and the related tax consequences.  In this session, we will explore some of these fee models and their broader implications, including:

  • the "1/30" model
  • Tiered Management Fees on Firm AUM
  • Tiered Management Fees on Net Subscriptions
  • Share accounting and administrator capabilities
  • ERISA considerations relating to share structure


We will also have an opportunity to round up on current regulatory development and to discuss current topics that may be of particular interest or concern from a legal or regulatory standpoint, so please feel free to email discussion points that you would like to cover in advance of the session.


This session is particularly relevant for COOs and GCs.
