Eagle Alpha has launched a new partnership with Lowenstein Sandler to meet the legal and compliance challenges associated with the on-boarding and use of alternative data in the hedge fund space.
“Reputation is paramount to our clients. Keeping abreast of the legal and compliance considerations regarding alternative data is becoming increasingly important, but also challenging,” says Emmett Kilduff (pictured), Founder & CEO of Eagle Alpha. “Eagle Alpha is pleased to announce today that we have partnered with a leading legal investment management practice to respond to these legal and compliance challenges,”
Eagle Alpha’s Data Strategy solution includes Category Workshops, Case Studies and will now include a Legal & Compliance component. The partnership will focus on four new items to reduce legal risk: monthly webinars on specific topics; the ability for clients to submit anonymous questions to be answered by lawyers at Lowenstein Sandler; monthly podcasts on specific topics; and periodic publications on specific topics.
“Our new initiative with Eagle Alpha is a great opportunity to address the hedge fund industry’s concerns with respect to alternative data, and to do so on a variety of platforms,” says Peter Greene, Partner and Vice Chair of the Investment Management Group at Lowenstein Sandler. “We look forward to elevating our level of support to the fund community.”
