Walkers Sponsors Hedgeweek's Key Steps to Success

Walkers is sponsoring Hedgeweek's Key Steps to Success- Managing a Start-up or Emerging Hedge Fund in 2019, taking place on Thursday 12 June in New York. 

Partner Dorothy Scott will be speaking as a panalist covering 'Legal & Fund Structure'. Dorothy's panel will look at the main offshore structuring considerations for US managers when setting up offshore alternative fund vehicles; management company considerations – defining the economic interests of the partners; and, how best to determine the fund’s fee structure. 

Partner Oliver Bell will also be in attendance. 

Key Steps to Success will provide a forum for delegates to understand each of the critical steps involved to successfully bring a hedge fund to market in what remains the single largest jurisdiction (from an asset raising perspective). For any new US fund manager, getting the planning right at the pre-launch phase can potentially make the difference between success and costly failure. The event will also cover the elements that are required post-launch when running an emerging hedge fund and navigating through what is often considered the hardest stage of a fund management company’s lifecycle.
