Through meticulous calculations, FITZ Partners delivers precise fund expense breakdowns and fee benchmarks at the lowest level of operations possible. All fee structures and classifications defined internally are based on audited fund documents and reviewed through FITZ Partners’ stringent internal quality assurance processes.
FITZ Partners calculations specifically describe, alongside Management fees, any Administration, Custody, Distribution, Audit, Professional, Custody Handling/Transaction, Performance, Subsidy or Other operating expenses paid by a fund, at share class level, in one given accounting period.
Our calculations remain consistent across domiciles and are based on the TER methodology pioneered by Fitzrovia International over 25 years ago, which has become the industry standard.
