Hedge Funds, Private Equity, and Venture Capital Firms

Hedge funds, private equity funds, and venture capital firms all share a common theme of fiduciary duty. The operators, sponsors, and manager of these funds must make the effort to avoid intentional or negligent fraud or financial misconduct. They must put the interests of the fund and its investors above their own personal interests. Professional advice must be obtained, and precautions must be taken to ensure that these fiduciary duties are followed. If a hedge fund manager, private equity manager, or venture capital firm fails to uphold its fiduciary duties, regulators or investors could file legal actions against the financial entity for losses and damages. Prosecutors could even file criminal charges.
