The article reports that, large fund management complexes may soon start raising their fees in the name of research, and sector benchmark TIAA-CREF steeped in its grandfatherly image of pension trustee to scientists and educators and known for its low fees, is taking a leading role. TIAA filed a proxy statement earlier in July 2005, seeking approval from shareholders to raise its fees on 12 of its funds. Analyses of the mutual fund industry by Integrity and by Greenwich Associates have shown a significant decrease in spending on outside research during the past few years.
