Hedge Fund Set Up
FCA registration under Linear Investments (Linear IP FSA regulated entity) enables you to get started quickly and simply whilst you build your track record, or obtain your own FCA regulation
We provide full services for hedge funds in a Hedge Fund Hotel structure if required. For example: set up as an “Appointed Representative” under Linear in weeks, not months, and gain access to our trading floor, platform and prime brokerage in one consolidated solution. Or choose only those services which best suit you.
Our FCA umbrella can be utilised by broker or hedge fund clients in 3-4 weeks instead of many months for full FCA registration. We charge flat monthly fees only (no percentage of AUM or performance) under a flexible contract with three months’ notice.
Our mini prime brokerage provides Hedge Fund clients with advice on: prospective fund administrators, infrastructure vendors and service providers. This structure enables Linear IP to support clients through every stage of the transition process mirroring the Hedge Fund Hotel approach.
Everything you need in one place Linear support multiple clients providing systems, middle/back office, infrastructure (office space, desks, IT), compliance and risk management systems to meet MifiD II and AIFMD standards – we take the aggravation and risk away from you.
Trading Desk & Systems
Smaller and mid-sized hedge funds and broker clients may have access to our trading floor and technology on a desk by desk basis competitively priced and on short term contracts. We provide clients with access to both internal and third party infrastructures and all standard trading platforms, this gives you a quick set-up time, allows you to focus on your core
business and building track record but does not lock you in long term.
