Get in Formation: Form Your Fund with the Right Resources

September 27, 2022

Launching a new private investment fund is no small feat. Those that go to market with merely a pitch-book summarizing a team and concept are typically ill-prepared for today’s sophisticated private fund investors. Generating interest in private investment is easily achievable but being adequately prepared to convert that interest into hard capital commitments from investors is another matter altogether—with many new fund managers being inexperienced and ill-prepared to do so. Many new fund teams fail to appreciate the level of due diligence, the volume of information and documentation to be prepared, and the corporate, regulatory, and capital considerations, and tax structuring necessary to successfully onboard sophisticated investors into a new fund. The legal advisor to a new fund team should be a key partner in preparing for successful fund formation and launch.
