Managers are showing increased interest in starting cryptocurrency funds or adding cryptocurrencies to their trading strategy (in fact, in December 2016, cryptocurrency market capitalization was only $15 billion; today, it is $170 billion). However, trading and valuation of digital currency is complex, and these funds face new and unique legal and regulatory concerns.

In this webinar we will discuss:

–  Best practices for starting a cryptocurrency fund or incorporating digital assets into an existing fund
–  How to structure this type of fund vehicle – fees, liquidity, share classes
–  How to handle these funds’ unique regulatory compliance considerations and anti-money laundering requirements
–  Dealing with issues around the valuation of currencies
–  Available portfolio management tools
–  How to best arrange custody of assets and keep those assets secure
–  Taxation of digital assets.

Speaker panel:

–  Blake Estes, counsel, Alston & Bird LLP
–  David Young, president, Gemini Companies
–  Dennis Schall, partner alt investment group, Marcum LLP
–  Tim Enneking, managing director, Crypto Asset Management and director, Mana Companies Asset Management
