Hedge Fund Private Placement Memorandum PPM
Private Placement Memorandum can help you create a tailored Private Placement Memorandum for a hedge fund. A hedge fund is an investment fund that is open to a limited amount and type of investor. The hedge fund is, under law, allowed to make investments spanning a wide array of industries and products – others funds may, however, not be allowed to do this – while paying a performance fees to its manager. We assist with both onshore and offshore hedge fund formation, private offering memorandum writing and general structuring for hedge funds.
Risk and Openness
A hedge fund tries to mitigate risk and even offset possible investment losses by ‘hedging’ their investment strategies, mainly by short selling. Hedge funds are typically open to a limited number and type of investor, such as wealthy individuals or even accredited investors. These restrictions allow for an exemption in certain jurisdictions from the many regulations governing short selling, leveraging, fee structures, derivatives and the amount of liquidity in the investment fund. A hedge fund often binds itself to a certain investment outlook or strategy, including the types of investments it will allocate funds with and the fund’s leverage capacity or level. These disclosures are typically made in the hedge fund private placement offering memorandum.
Private Placement Memorandum for Hedge Funds
For issuers considering selling stock in the company or selling debt securities to investors a well-tailored and written Private Placement Memorandum is mandatory, particularly in light of the current economic conditions. A Private Placement Memorandum offering document can bring added protection to your business and is often required to raise either debt or equity capital in the private placement market. A well written Private Placement Memorandum will tell the story of the company, from the minute details of the types of securities being offered, i.e. debt versus equity like bonds or notes or stocks or shares, to the management team, the market, the risk factors and the overall business plan model of the company, among many other features. The last two sections of the PPM consist of the investor questionnaire and the subscription agreement, together referred to as the subscription documents. Both are essential for an investor as he/she can fill out the questionnaire and the subscription agreement and make a payment for purchase of the stock or bonds or other securities.
Although the Private Placement Memorandum is first and foremost a document used to raise capital, the structure and presentation of the Private Placement Memorandum can add value to a company’s products and services and team by highlighting the strengths of the team in an eye pleasing format. A PPM indicates to investors that the issuer is serious and has gone the extra length to ensure regulatory compliance and good business practices. Without a formal document that outlines the company’s business plan and securities structure it is often difficult to raise capital from any serious investor.
