HFA Symposium

In the face of mounting regulations, reporting requirements, and investor expectations, launching and operating a hedge fund can be a formidable undertaking. At the same time, emerging manager platforms and managed service offerings have the potential to simplify operations for hedge fund managers.

Please join hosts KPMG LLP (KPMG) and the Hedge Fund Association(HFA) for an afternoon seminar that will bring together industry specialists to discuss key aspects of launching and operating a hedge fund. Panels will be held on the following key disciplines:

  • Hedge Fund Structuring and Essentials: Legal, Tax and Accounting & Achieving Institutional Grade Technology
  • Raising Capital in a New Era

Attendees will enjoy informative and interactive panel discussions followed by cocktails and networking. This HFA Symposium is complimentary for HFA members, investors, managers, lawmakers and regulators. A limited number of non member industry service providers can attend for $100.
