The relationship between hedge funds and prime brokers forms the core of and drives the alternative investment industry, and is at the heart of our financial markets. Neither could exist without the other. This partnership resolves around and is based on the prime brokerage agreement. How are these crafted? On what requirements are they based?

This unique one day workshop explores prime brokerage agreements. It helps you understand how hedge funds obtain the capital they need to trade, hedge their portfolios and deliver absolute returns. It explores how prime brokers operate, during each phase of a hedge fund’s life. It explains how to navigate the intricacies of provisions such as collateral, charges, margin requirements, events of default, remedies and funding.
