Hedge Fund Set Up

Regulatory registration under Linear Investments enables you to get started quickly and simply whilst you build your track record, or obtain your own 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

Our regulatory umbrella can be utilised by broker or hedge fund clients in 3-4 weeks instead of many months for full regulatory registration. We charge flat monthly fees only (no percentage of AUM or performance) under a flexible contract with three months’ notice.

Advice

Our 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.

Infrastructure

Everything you need in one place

Prime Broker Services for smaller hedge funds

Trading Desk & Systems
