Fund administration
Asked by Jonathan Barton

How much does a fund administrator (including registrar services) charge?

Answer By

Fund administrative fees vary greatly depending upon the size of your fund. In particular, it depends upon fund assets under management and the number of fund clients. For a small start up fund, expect to pay a flat fee of around $1,500 per month. Conversely with a larger fund, say one with $500 million in AUM, the administrator will charge a fee based on AUM, such as 10-15 basis points. Hence, for a $500 million fund, a fee of 10 bps amounts to $500,000 in fees per year. Also bear in mind that in general, administrators will only work with clients who manage in excess of $100 million.
