The book contains guidance on the project management of getting a hedge fund to market from a European base.

Often a new hedge fund manage may have had limited exposure to services that are available to small hedge fund fund management companies. Should you engage a PR company, are you allowed to talk to the media, if you can how do you do it to your advantage? Is it worthwhile setting up your own regulated vehicle, or should you start out under a regulatory umbrella company? These are the kind of questions answered directly in the book.

Fund Administrators differ in what they can do for a hedge fund managers beyond calculating a NAV. Do you need risk measurement capability from a third party or not? What middle office services would complement your Portfolio Management System? Getting these high level questions right sets a new hedge fund firm off in the right way for the medium-to-long term.

The key service providers covered include lawyers and prime brokers who share their experience on the structural issues that have to be settled. There is a significant technological infrastructure required to set up a hedge fund in Europe - and the considerations behind the choices to be made are fully reflected.

This book takes you through the start up process from all sides, including the insights from a hedge fund staffer that has been through the process several times over. You can learn from his mistakes without having to make them yourself.

Funds cannot launch and prosper without investors. The last two chapters give the perspective of a seasoned investor in hedge funds and a list of investors that are prepared to commit to a hedge fund in it's early stages of development. The list has full contact details for the key decision makers.
