Insider perspective on Commission Management 
23rd February 2024

Investment advisors play a vital role in guiding investors towards suitable investment funds and allocations. For this important function they often are paid a commission, also known as trailer fee or retrocession, by the asset manager. And since this remuneration forms a relevant part of the advisor’s revenue, it is key for the product provider to have commission calculation and related payments efficiently set up. 

Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Veljko Dragumilo, the Commission Management Team Lead at Acolin, with nearly five years of dedicated service to the company. Reconciling assets, calculating commissions, and ensuring prompt payment are fundamental to our operations.
