Setting up your hedge fund
A fresh approach.
Establishing an offshore hedge fund structure is a time-intensive
process involving multiple parties with a variety of deliverables
and milestones. So while you focus on raising capital and
executing your strategy, Front Shore will take care of the
structure, helping your fund to hit the ground running.
We know where the bottlenecks in fund formation tend to occur,
and can help you to avoid them by establishing responsibilities
Choosing the right partner.
In today's regulatory environment, a high-calibre independent
director is a must for any fund. At Front Shore we've
designed our approach to independent directorships around the
increase in demand for robust fund governance from both
fund managers and investors. We take a meaningful role and get actively involved, advising when required, and performing our duties with the operational excellence investors demand.
We only take on directorships that we have the capacity and expertise to handle, which means that we are available when our clients need us, and able to give each project the full attention it deserves
Choosing a fund domicile
Regulation and experience.
Creating and managing a fund involves a wealth of players, such as administrators, lawyers, tax advisors, auditors, bankers, registered offices, independent directors, and a prime broker and custodian. Choosing the right jurisdiction is key. Regulatory sophistication, the legal and tax framework, business conditions and knowledge and expertise need to be considered and continuously reviewed throughout the lifetime of the fund. Understanding this also helps us to raise the bar on behalf of our clients.
