Hedge Fund
Greenwich, CT

During his transition from a large Manhattan-based private equity consulting firm, the senior partner of a new hedge fund needed help setting up offices and processes.
Start U Up worked in two phases.
Phase I:
  • Assisted in securing short-term office space
  • Maintained books and records until the start-up was completed
Phase II:
  • Guided selection of permanent office space, layout, and furniture
  • Created internal control structure and accounting and reporting systems
  • Set up Prime Broker relationship and executing broker documentation
  • Created corporate governance infrastructure
  • Crafted reporting procedures to the primary investor to facilitate timely, accurate 13-d and related SEC and regulatory filings
  • Formalized Code of Ethics and employee manual
  • Oversaw final agreements for the fund and management company
Nine months after the fund’s launch, Start U Up was re-engaged when the CFO position was vacated.
In our current capacity, Start U Up:
  • Serves as the outsourced compliance officer, CFO and human resources ombudsman for employee complaint resolution
  • Manages and monitors the outside fund accountants
  • Functions as a liaison to the accountants, lawyers and executive staff of the parent company
