Hedge Fund Outsourcing

June 21, 2016

Historically, investment managers, particularly emerging managers, have assumed that in order to have a successful fundraise and to meet their Rule 206 regulatory requirements, they would need to spend large sums building out a complete in-house back-office consisting of a Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Trader, and Chief Compliance Officer. However, a dramatic shift in the preferences of institutional investors is taking place. Enter outsourcing. Institutional investors have begun recommending, and in some cases mandating, investment managers outsource key functions of their back-office and trading to build proper independent controls around critical infrastructure (i.e. cash movements, regulatory compliance, etc.). Outsourcing these functions to independent third parties allows managers to minimize risks, minimize operating costs, streamline operations, and create a more institutional quality offering and of course, meet their regulatory needs.

On June 21, 2016, Tannenbaum Helpern’s Michael Tannenbaum, William Byrne from Cowen Prime and Michael S. Minces of Blue River Partners covered key topics regarding hedge fund outsourcing and the SEC and operational issues to consider. For more information, please email Tara at Fragiacomo@thsh.com.
