Managing a successful hedge fund requires more than just positive investment performance. In the face of a rising tide of external investor and regulatory demands, managers must continually question if they have the infrastructure, strategies and depth of advisory resources to thrive under changing conditions. Is the fund positioned, for example, to adroitly and profitably address questions of trader or investor tax status, cost controls and allocation, fee caps, and assurances of management continuity?
