Capital Raising Environment for Emerging Managers

January 11, 2011
Herrick, Feinstein LLP and BTIG2 Park Avenue, New York, New York

We hosted a panel discussion that highlighted current trends and perspectives on capital raising for startup and emerging hedge fund managers, including current views of investors on best practices for structuring, compliance and marketing techniques to help maximize capital raising during this critical period of their lifecycle. This event was a valuable resource to hedge fund managers with less than $100 million in assets under management by providing a forum to hear industry experts discuss current issues in the fund industry and the steps emerging managers need to take to ensure a successful launch.
