Marketing and Reporting Considerations for Emerging Hedge Fund Managers
Hedge Fund Law Report
In order to survive and flourish in a market dominated by large, well-established competitors, emerging hedge fund managers must be well versed in the risks and potential dangers of raising funds and be mindful of regulatory compliance blunders, such as incomplete disclosures, insufficient controls and inadequate policies and procedures. See “How Can Emerging Managers Raise Institutional Capital While Avoiding Regulatory Pitfalls?” (Aug. 22, 2013). Pepper Hamilton recently hosted a symposium focusing on a number of these risks and offering practical solutions. Moderated by partner Irwin Latner, the panel discussion featured Adil Abdulali, senior managing director of risk management for Protégé Partners; Christopher Edgar, managing director, capital solutions, for Convergex Prime Services; Andrew Goodman, a partner at Infusion Global Partners; and Chris Lombardy, a managing director at Duff & Phelps. This article highlights the key points raised by the panel. Other articles addressing issues faced by emerging managers include: “Establishing a Hedge Fund Manager in Seventeen Steps” (Aug. 27, 2015); and “Stars in Transition: A New Generation of Private Fund Managers” (Dec. 10, 2009).
