We specialize in providing our clients with professional guidance through all aspects of launching and operating a fund. Our services extend to all stages of the fund formation process — from entity formation and the preparation of full-colour offering documents to advising them on the selection of service providers to marketing the fund.
Offshore Funds. We have extensive experience forming offshore funds for managers who expect to attract predominately non-U.S. investors and/or tax-exempt U.S. investors. Our expertise extends to multiple offshore fund jurisdictions, including the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and the Bahamas, where we maintain a presence. Our services are comprehensive and include incorporating the offshore fund, memorandum and articles of association, handling all registration requirements, and preparing the offering memorandum, and subscription documents, as well as an investment management agreement between the fund and the investment manager. We are able to form offshore stand-alone funds, side-by-side fund structures and master-feeder structures.
Onshore U.S. Hedge Funds. We support emerging and seasoned managers in all aspects of the fund formation process, including advising on fund structure, regulatory and on-going compliance matters; structuring the management company; manage regulatory filings, including entity formation filings, blue sky notices, SEC and state investment adviser registrations, and CPO/CTA registrations and exemption filings; and preparing full-colour offering documents custom-made for your fund. The offering documents include the private placement memorandum, limited partnership agreement (or operating agreement) and subscription documents.
