Top 4 CHP Program Benefits for Hedge Fund Startups
The hedge fund industry has never been so competitive, and investors have never been so critical. Our team including Richard Wilson who created the Certified Hedge Fund Professional (CHP) program, have raised millions of dollars for sub $50M hedge funds. We have worked with over 500 hedge fund startups, and we know the challenges you face.
Our hedge fund certification program was initially created with mid-level hedge fund career professionals in mind. Soon after launching, we saw a flood of interest from hedge fund managers both small and large. We have now had hedge fund startups from the United States, UK, Switzerland and China complete our program.
Here are the top 4 benefits that our hedge fund certification program provides to new hedge fund managers or those professionals that are completing the work needed for a new hedge fund startup.
Top 4 Benefits for Hedge Fund Startups
1) Improve the credibility of your hedge fund, your credentials, and who you associate yourself with. Investors and institutional consultants want to know that you are committed to your business. They also want to be able to trust that you are not a fly-by-night, garage-based hedge fund which is ran by a few friends. Earning the CHP Designation shows a re-investment in your knowledge, your team’s expertise, and your level of industry knowledge.
2) Gain a foundation of hedge fund knowledge that allows you to refine your business plans, understand how research firms perceive your hedge fund and how others will be evaluating your performance.
3) Obtain Direct access to consultants and industry professionals who can help connect you to administration firms, accounting experts, auditing firms, attorneys, marketers, research providers and prime brokerage firms that specialize in working with hedge fund startups who have under $30M in assets under management.
4) Speak the language. Earning the CHP Designation assures that you can attend and participate in conferences, survive due diligence processes, and effectively engage others within industry networking events. This program helps you participate in these areas and brings you up-to-speed with many of the topics or themes being discussed today.
