In this article the magnetic properties of strongly anisotropic ferrimagnets of the f–d type with compensation point in the large magnetic fields were studied. As example we use rare-earth intermetallics HoFexAl12–x, x = 5, 6. For these compounds the com-pensation point Tcomp > 0 is present when x = 5, and Tcomp ≈ 0 К when x = 6. In the framework of the two-sublattice model of a f–d ferrimagnet with a compensation point magnetic phase diagrams were obtained and analyzed. The magnetocrystalline anisotropy and weak inter-lattice exchange were taken into consideration. Special attention was paid to the influence of the strong rare-earth anisotropy on the behavior and properties of magnetic phase transitions.
