Investment Fees
Survey of Preparers of Government Financial Statements

Thank you for participating in this survey as part of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board’s (GASB) pre-agenda research on investment fees.

This research was prompted by concerns raised regarding the degree of transparency of reporting certain investment management fees and potential inconsistency in reporting investment expense. The research will help the Board to determine whether existing guidance is sufficient or, if not, whether improvements to the relevant standards should be considered.

For more information about this pre-agenda research, visit its dedicated page on the GASB website.
