San Francisco, California (PRWEB) March 18, 2009
Hedge Fund Law Blog (http://www.hedgefundlawblog.com), a website devoted to providing legal information to hedge fund managers, has recently released a presentation entitled "Starting a Hedge Fund in 2009." The presentation covers the basic information managers will need to start their hedge fund.
"Hard times and layoffs within the investment management industry have actually created a great opportunity for talented managers to start their own hedge funds," said Bart Mallon, a lawyer and the chief contributing author to the Hedge Fund Law Blog. "The start up presentation that we have developed will provide these potential managers with the information and tools they will need in order to make informed decisions about the many aspects of forming a hedge fund."
The presentation is designed to give prospective managers an idea of the many issues involved in the fund formation process and focuses on the following key areas:
- Hedge Fund Laws
- Structural Considerations
- Registration Information
- Service Providers
- Offering Documents
- Raising Capital
- Start Up Costs
Bart Mallon noted that "Hedge fund managers often have misperceptions about starting their own hedge fund. While a hedge fund can be established in a short amount of time, it is very important for a manager to really think through the business issues involved in launching a fund and asset management business. The manager should, for instance, think about the firm's daily operations and how long the firm will be able to keep the lights on in the event there are no performance fees. Such issues are often afterthoughts for managers - this is why the start up presentation is so valuable for these managers."
In addition to the standard PowerPoint presentation, the Hedge Fund Law Blog has also provided a voice-over format option. The presentations can be downloaded and viewed anytime at http://www.hedgefundlawblog.com/hedge-fund-start-up-presentation.html.
