The number of new funds that come to the market continues to grow year-on-year however the challenges in establishing and managing your different funds remain the same. When forming a fund there are many things to consider early on that will need to be navigated such as the following:

  • Which fund structure to use.
  • Selecting the most appropriate domicile.
  • Designing the right operating model.
  • Finding the right balance between internal and external resources.

Understandably, when forming your fund, you’re bound to be focused on coordinating its launch, ensuring the capital-raising process runs smoothly and managing the ongoing day-to-day fund activity.
