Start a Hedge Fund • Set Up a Hedge Fund • Hedge Fund Startup
Few firms in the hedge fund industry can be classified into the "diamond in the rough" category like HedgeCo. We first became acquainted with HedgeCo back when our
fund launched and we were looking for a reputable firm to design our website. As we were perusing other fund's sites, we noticed a general theme that many happened
to be designed by the same firm, HedgeCo Websites. We reached out to them and found ourselves talking directly with the CEO himself, Evan Rapoport, which was a nice
touch. Evan's extremely dynamic and energetic personality along with his command in the hedge fund world gave us the confidence to engage them to design our site.
The team was quick to begin, met deadlines on time and the end product has garnered much praise from fellow managers. Later, realizing that HedgeCo also facilitated
capital raising opportunities, we reached back out to them. HedgeCo helped smoothly transition a move to a new broker platform that could better suit our needs while
at the same time putting us in touch with a number of institutional investors that has turned out to be extremely fruitful. They invited us out to an emerging manager's
conference in Chicago which helped amplify our exposure to the hedge fund arena. HedgeCo's efforts has helped us triple our firm's assets under management within a year.
Evan and his team have been an unrelenting source of information and help as our firm maneuvers through the emerging manager stage and would be an indispensible asset to
anyone in the hedge fund business.
Owning your own broker/dealer has its advantages. The profits alone can make it well worth your while. Having a broker/dealer can open the door to doing your own trading and investment banking. A broker/dealer can also add that certain something to your company, heightening your reputation and name.
However, broker/dealer start-ups require an intense amount of effort and personnel. The lengthy registration process and course of hurdles make the set-up and operation of a broker/dealer laborious and time-consuming. Many times, firms submit the initial registration forms, only to be discouraged by the on-going requests for documentation and the constant back-and-forth communication with FINRA.
That is where HedgeFundPackages comes in. Our experts have helped to set up numerous broker/dealers, expediting the start-up process tremendously.
