Corporate Essentials for Successful Hedge Fund Startups

By Kaleigh Alessandro,
Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Tomorrow, we are co-hosting an exciting seminar in New York City with our friends at KPMG on the topic of launching a hedge fund. The half-day event, Hedge Fund Launch 2.0: Navigating the New Environment, will feature expert panel sessions on variety of topics including technology, regulations, capital raising, application platforms and more.
One panel we’re particularly interested in – beyond the technology panels, of course – is Corporate Essentials, a program focused on the often forgotten-about aspects of launching a new business. These aspects include human resources, compensation, insurance and real estate. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the content our panelists will be discussing at tomorrow’s event:

Human Resources

  • Essential components of a human resources infrastructure

  • Front and back office staffing requirements

  • Employee benefits typically provided by hedge funds


  • Typical compensation structures for front, middle and back office

  • Compensation trends in financial services

  • ‘Hot’ functions in terms of recruiting and compensation


  • The types of insurance needed for a business, including professional liability, employment practices liability, and property & casualty

  • The right time to investigate insurance options for your hedge fund

  • The effect of the Affordable Care Act/Healthcare Reform on hedge fund insurance decision-making

Real Estate
