What is fund formation and administration?
Fund formation is the pooling of money with the goal of earning money. There are several types of funds that can be formed for investment and business purposes including venture capital, fund of funds, private equity, growth equity, investment fund, and FinTech sponsors, just to name a few.
Fund administration incorporates best practices that adhere to regulations on Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) compliance, conflict of interest, fee and expense allocation, and related disclosers as well as security measures like Know Your Investor (KYI) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML). With a fund administrator in place private equity firms can continue to build secure relationship with investors.
Why do I need legal guidance on fund formation and administration?
When forming a fund there is a set of legal criteria, legal documentation, and SEC filings required in order to gain any sort of investor interest. Some of that legal criteria includes a private placement memorandum (PPM), an operational agreement, a subscription agreement, and an investor questionnaire.
