Hedge Fund Expert Witnesses
What is a hedge fund expert witness?
Hedge fund expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree (i.e., an MBA), and backgrounds in private equity, valuation, investment banking, venture capital, financial planning, corporate finance, investment management, and/or financial markets. While hedge funds require less SEC regulations than other funds (such as a mutual fund), hedge fund managers need to pass the FINRA Series 7 as well as applicable state regulatory exams.
