  • Hedge Funds Start-Up 101 Masterclasses

    When starting a hedge fund, many managers are concerned primarily with securing capital and optimizing their investment strategy. Securing appropriate service providers who enable a new fund to operate efficiently and compliantly often is given short shrift. To shed light on the important role of service providers, Mitch Ackles, President of the Hedge Fund Association, recently moderated two HFA TV discussions about the service needs of start-up funds.
