The first stage is preparing for the opening of the fund. It includes the choice of the country and the type of hedge fund, the coordination of the management mechanisms of the fund and its structure, the collection and preparation of all necessary documents, etc. The duration of this stage mostly depends on the client himself, and can take from several weeks to several months.
