Hedge Funds in Israel
The Hedge Funds industry in Israel includes dozens of funds, some of which are registered in Israel and some in various countries such as Cayman Islands, Virgin Islands, United States, and more. The Israeli hedge funds are not supervised by the ISA (Israel Securities Authority). Since hedge funds are designed to function in any given market status, the lack of supervision by the ISA enables fund managers to focus on their accounts alone.
Fund Managers' Need for Ongoing Professional Assistance
The lack of regulation on the Israeli hedge fund industry enables fund managers to focus on their accounts alone. Yet, these same fund managers have a crucial need to rely on professionals with relevant experience, who can assist in constructing the structure for new funds, investment agreements, taxation frameworks, and more.
