Launching Your Hedge Fund Strategy In An ETF
A New Route To Access Capital
Thursday, March 25, 2021 - 3pm GMT / 10am Eastern / 9am Central
The evident growth in active ETFs demonstrates that both the use of the ETF wrapper for active strategies and the demand for actively managed ETFs is growing. Hedge funds are somewhat back in vogue for investors and their advisors, but for many, the traditional barriers to allocating to hedge funds - lock-ups, accredited / professional investor access criteria and monthly (sometimes quarterly) liquidity means that advisors can't or won't go near them. Hedge fund managers are delivering strategies in UCITS-compliant structures,however, so why not as ETFs as a useful means of distribution? If you're considering launching an actively-managed ETF to exist alongside your private fund, or would just like to learn more about the benefits and opportunities that exist for active managers, join AlphaWeek for a one-hour webinar that will provide insight into structuring, distributing and operation an ETF.
