Management Fee

A fee that an investment advisory firm charges for making investment decisions on behalf of a client. Asset management often opens up more potential investment vehicles to the client, and, theoretically, asset managers have more knowledge and experience in making appropriate investment decisions than the client. Managers charge fees for these services. Usually, the fee is a small percentage of the assets under management, but because asset management is often open only to institutional investors and high net-worth individuals, the management fee is usually a large dollar amount. It is also called an advisory fee.
