Fund Establishment

In the process of establishing a new business, fund managers are facing the need to launch funds (typically, Cayman Island domiciled) as well as their own fund management entities. The whole process can easily take 6 to 12 months, depending on availability of resources, previous experience, presence of competing priorities, and come with a hefty price tag.

 

Alternatively, fund managers can engage a team like ours to assist them with the launch. We have relationships with various fund advisors, including reputable US and foreign lawyers, top-tier prime brokers, fund administrators, auditors, independent non-executive directors, and trustees. Given our team’s expertise and track record, the launch time can be shortened to 2-4 months at a fraction of the cost.

 

In addition, many top-tier service providers will not consider working with a start-up fund manager which may leave managers, attempting to launch on their own, with no choice but to go to second-tier providers, which can impact the risk profile of their funds, their returns and their ability to raise money from investors. With the backing of our brand name this situation can be avoided.

 

Fund managers can further speed up the process by leveraging our regulatory coverage via our licensed structure in either Hong Kong or Tokyo (See Licensed Environment).
