Hedge fund regulation, compliance & administration

We have launched hedge funds (single entity funds and master feeder structures), converted single entity funds into master feeder structures, managed launches and coordinated listing applications, supervised continuing obligation requirements and regulatory filings, conducted RFPs, managed AML programmes and designed and advised directors on oversight programmes. One of our Principals edited Hedge Funds and Prime Brokers 2nd ed., the definitive industry guide, and wrote An Introduction to Hedge Funds.

Specialist hedge fund regulatory expertise

We can, with and for you:

  • conduct RFP processes to appoint or replace prime brokers, administrators and other hedge fund service providers
  • advise directors on hedge fund formation and structural matters, the launch process, documentation, conversion to master feeder structures, EGMs, proxy solicitations and winding-up
  • advise on and conduct independent oversight reviews for directors
  • manage director meetings and coordinate the activities of service providers
  • advise on “sensitive” and cross border matters, including sales of shares and interests to US tax-paying and tax-exempt investors, side letters, valuations, redemption fee issues and “inconsistent” regulatory requirements
  • coordinate the documentation process for launches and reorganisations – and review documents across funds launched at different times to identify gaps to address to help ensure consistency
