The hedgeweekLIVE North America summit, which was held online from 16-18 June, provided a forum for delegates to understand each of the critical steps involved to successfully bring a hedge fund to market in what remains the single largest jurisdiction (from an asset raising perspective). For any new US fund manager, getting the planning right at the pre-launch phase can potentially make the difference between success and costly failure.
The event also covered the elements that are required post-launch when running an emerging hedge fund and navigating through what is often considered the hardest stage of a fund management company’s lifecycle. Through a series of in-depth panel discussions, presentations and case studies, the event layed out the main considerations for start-ups and emerging fund managers, from legal structuring and ODD best practices, all the way through to devising an impactful marketing and distribution strategy.
