New Manager Forum Panel III – Post-launch Matters

Launching a new hedge fund or private equity fund can be one of the most exciting and rewarding ventures a person will ever undertake-and it can also be the most challenging, given today's competitive and demanding investing environment.

With that in mind, Pepper Hamilton teamed up with Constellation Investment Consulting to put together a New Manager Forum in Pepper’s NY office earlier this year. Speakers included perspectives from all facets of the investment industry, including lawyers, consultants, prime brokers, accountants, startup administrators, fund admin services and a hedge fund placement agent.

We recorded the forum and broke it up into three separate podcasts.

This podcast focuses on post-launch matters such as continued marketing and fundraising; increasing complexity in operations; SEC registration, conflicts of interest, allocation issues, and other legal and regulatory issues; the need to expand service providers or functions; and other challenges on the horizon as the new managers grows, including investor due diligence demands.

You can also listen to the podcast recordings of Panel I which focuses on critical pre-launch considerations and Panel II which focuses on launch issues.
