Schulte lawyers have updated their comprehensive book on hedge funds, Hedge Funds: Formation, Operation and Regulation, published by ALM’s Law Journal Press. Addressing legal and practical issues of importance to counsel for both sponsors and investors, the book explains the complete spectrum of hedge fund investment structuring, operation and regulation.
Since the first funds were established over 60 years ago, the hedge fund industry has grown dramatically in size and complexity. More than just a passing phenomenon, hedge funds are now an important part of global asset management; and increasingly the focus of new legislation and regulation. This up-to-date and forward-looking guide explains topics including hedge fund investment strategies, domestic and off-shore hedge fund structure and tax considerations, terms, fees, and related considerations for sponsors and investors, regulatory requirements and fiduciary obligations of investment advisers, fund documentation, including marketing materials, offering memoranda, governing documents and related and agreements; and structuring a hedge fund management company.
