Management fee and performance of polish real estate funds

Paweł Oleksy


The management fee is one of the fundamental factors in determining the efficiency of real estate funds. As a  main cost component it affects the periodic fund’s financial result and assets value. The analysis of 9 polish public closed-end real estate funds shows that the system used for calculating the management fee on the basis of periodic net assets value appears to be an inadequate motivator for fund managers to create value for investors. Its current construction is one of the sources of poor performance achievements of polish public real estate funds in the last decade, measured by long-term rates of return or efficiency indicators. Based on that, the author develops an alternative, more adequate and “fair” system which contributes more to the improvement of the funds performance.
