The Law of Hedge Funds: A Global Perspective is a concise yet comprehensive guide to the law in this area.

Practical and user-friendly, it covers all the relevant legal aspects involved, including choice of jurisdiction and vehicle, service providers, prime brokerage, fund directors, the regulatory environment in the UK, the EU and the USA, marketing in various different jurisdictions, taxation, employment and the in-house perspective.

This second edition has been updated to take account of the changes introduced by the Alternative Investment Funds Managers Directive (AIFMD).

The second edition includes the following:-

  • Coverage and interpretation of the EU's Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive
  • Coverage of capital adequacy - i.e. does a fund have enough capital to cover its liabilities / how high risk is it
  • Retailisations - the use of UCITS (Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities) which are more commonly used now
  • Expanded International perspective to include Switzerland, Ireland and Hong Kong
  • Seed managers
  • In depth coverage of Prime brokerage
  • New case law - e.g. Lehmans
