ERISA Fiduciary Investment Basics 2017


March 20, 2017
177 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036

Hedge Fund CEO meets with outside counsel. Through a series of Q&A's, the basic ERISA issues are reviewed from the perspective of the hedge fund:

  • What is the structure of the fund?
  • What does it mean to manage "plan assets" under ERISA and how do I know if my fund will be deemed to hold "plan assets"?
  • Is the fund manager an ERISA fiduciary and, if so, what are the consequences?
  • How does ERISA plan status affect hedge fund business operations, e.g. payment of fees to the fund manager, indicia of ownership requirements, ERISA bonding requirements?
