Preparation – Establishing a Fund
We support the advisors in a number of ways, from the preparation and issue of the fund investment memorandum, keeping a close eye on the regulatory obligations whilst getting the correct structures in place. Review of the fund marketing/promotional documentation – advice and professional input into the structures and domiciles of the fund and or schemes. Liaison with other professional advisors, managing necessary verification and financial approvals of the documentation. Assisting in appointment and using some of our internal team on investment committees, fund directors from the Investment Manager who are already approved by regulators from Ireland, to Malta to Cayman.
Our offering is further enhanced as through our partners we have on the ground investment managers, who are locally regulated in Hong Kong and in the Cayman Islands offering expertise and substance, not simply letterbox PO boxes, which can be delegated back to the UK or other jurisdictions.
