PE VC Hedge Funds - Fund Formation

Basics of Fund Formation

Private funds are legally required to organize in a very specific manner. Each requires a sponsor (investment manager) and a specified investment target/objective. Investors in private funds are normally passive, much like a mutual fund or ETF investor, and rely on the fund sponsor to acquire, manage and divest appropriately. Of course, there are differences between the different kinds of private funds. This webinar explores fund formation from an economic and compliance standpoint, and leverages our panelists’ experience to explain how the structure of private funds influence their performance. The webinar also touches on documentation and compliance in an age of regulatory scrutiny, and how funds are evolving to adjust.
