Q+A Forum



Is a Series 65 really needed to run a hedge fund?
Everything on the Series 65 exam has absolutely nothing to do with a hedge fund?
If a fund’s General Partner registers as an LLC and the fund itself registers as an LP in Delaware, would the fund have to register with as an RIA in every state it offers clients to join?
Example: If the fund is running in North Carolina, a person who lives in Florida wants to invest, can I accept their funds or should I have the fund registered in that state first?
Also, does the manager have to obtain a series 65 license before raising capital or can he/she get the license just before actively trading? Thank you in advance. Please be as detailed as possible in your responses.

In a non public hedge fund, how many members can be invested? Is it 35 non accredited, and 64 accredited investors? Is there a limit on non accredited? Or is the fund then just called something else besides a hedge fund like a mutual fund? Can a hedge fund have an unlimited amount of partners? Does the SEC enforce the “accredited” part or is that just a suggestion? Please help me clarify this. Thank you in advance.

P&L is tracked daily, AUM can be tracked for top-up and redemption. We report the performance information, such as total returns, and performance ratio. What is the best approach to calculate hedge fund returns?

So if you have a LP as your hedge fund you are selling interest and people are just buying a percentage of your company.  How then, do you provide a NAV since you don’t have shares to divide it by?
