Nottingham can expertly handle the organization and registration of a new mutual fund or hedge fund, or even help you expand your existing fund family. Having guided the registration of over 120 U.S. mutual funds, our experienced legal team can manage every facet of fund organization and registration, including all aspects of registration with the SEC under The Investment Company Act of 1940, related Blue Sky registrations in all 50 states, and the coordination of Trustee and Shareholder meetings, minutes and proxy support. Our people offer a tremendous depth of knowledge and dedication to thorough, personable client service, so that our clients can focus on the critical issues of their work.
We strive to make the process very simple. We'll shepherd the process of gathering the details surrounding your product's investment objectives and strategies. Our in-house legal staff works directly with investment advisors and fund sponsors to draft the registration documents and prepare for filing. We then forward completed draft documents for review by one of the experienced law firm partners we use for specific structures or jurisdictions. By completing much of the time consuming document drafting in-house, we help clients significantly reduce the initial cost of organization. We also provide recommendations and quotations for other corporate action service partners, including audit assistance, custodians and prime brokers.
