Starting a Low Cost Hedge Fund





Our professional services begin with pre-launch consultation, document preparations check list, and basic information regarding federal and state rules & regulations affecting your particular fund development and operation.


Starting a low cost hedge fund in the U.S. is typically structured as a limited liability company incorporated in Delaware. Depending on which type of fund you choose will determine which set of regulations will apply when starting a hedge fund. Here are some examples of possible regulatory exemptions to which can be relied on when starting a hedge fund in the U.S.:

• Regulation D, Rule 506 of the Securities Act of 1933.

• Investment Company Act of 1940 Section 3(c)(1) or 3(c)(7).

• Title IV of the Dodd-Frank Act.

• JOBS Act, Title II which allows for general solicitation and advertising


Setup costs. If you set up a U.S. based hedge fund, your costs should range $6,000 to $10,000. This includes preparing your offering documents, registering the LLC (I recommend Delaware) and having a qualified securities attorney review your offering documents. Any further out-of-pocket expenses are for marketing and travel to meet and greet your potential investors.


Calculate ongoing costs. This is where many start up funds fall short. Setting up is easy, maintaining is another story. You will need to consider hiring an administrator who will handle your accounting records, calculate your fees, and run due diligence on your potential investors. All this comes with a monthly cost which is charged to your fund. Administrator costs can range from $500 to $4,000 per month. You will also need an auditor. Technically, it is not a requirement but most, if not all investors demand it. Depending on the "name" of your auditor, yearly costs can be from $5,000 in upwards to $20,000 (Big 4). Again, charged to the fund.


Open your bank and brokerage accounts. It is not always necessary to have a prime broker in the early stages of a fund. They become way too expensive. Start with a basic cash account for subscriptions, expenses, distributions, etc. Then open a brokerage account.


Decide on a launch date. I have seen funds launch after a certain amount of seed capital is raised. I have also seen funds which launch as soon as the first subscription is approved. This all depends on your minimum investment amount and your trading strategy. It's best to consult with your hedge fund adviser on this one.
