New York City Bar’s “Hedge Funds in the Current Environment” Event Focuses on Hedge Fund Structuring, Private Fund Examinations, Compliance Risks and Seeding Arrangements

On March 5, 2014, the New York City Bar held the most recent edition of its annual “Hedge Funds in the Current Environment” event.  Panelists at the event – including general counsels and chief compliance officers (CCOs) from leading hedge fund managers and partners from top law firms – addressed hedge fund structuring considerations (including the purposes and mechanics of mini-master funds); the myth of the unregulated hedge fund; analogies between regulatory examinations and investor due diligence; seven key areas of regulatory interest in hedge fund examinations; five headline issues confronting CCOs; four pros and seven cons of hedge fund seeding arrangements; and a structuring alternative to seeding ventures.  This article highlights the salient points from the event.  For our coverage of the 2012 edition of this event, see “Davis Polk ‘Hedge Funds in the Current Environment’ Event Focuses on Establishing Registered Alternative Funds, Hedge Fund Manager M&A and SEC Examination Priorities,” Hedge Fund Law Report, Vol. 5, No. 24 (Jun. 14, 2012).
