Fund Structuring

Fund Structuring

LumMap Overview

LumX was an early and vigorous proponent of greater transparency in the hedge fund industry. A key initiative in this area was the creation, in 2010, of the LumMap managed account platform, which offers extensive expertise and infrastructure, responding to the growing demand from investors for improved governance, segregation of assets, and increased transparency.

LumX also drew on its own 20-year experience investing in complex alternative fund strategies to ensure that LumMap’s features would help managers setting up funds on LumMap to fully express their investment strategy without the restrictions or administrative complications often associated with platforms created to support structuring activities by investment banks. LumMap can efficiently launch funds in a variety of jurisdictions and can help managers meet the regulatory requirements under regimes such as UCITS and AIFMD.

LumMap provides flexible and cost-effective bespoke structuring solutions tailored to meet specific needs and regulatory requirements of investors and asset managers in a strong risk control environment. LumX’s network of service providers, trading counterparties, and prime brokers ensures fully independent valuations, tight control over mandate guidelines and limits, and direct verification of asset custody and ownership for each fund on the platform. It also offers managers the flexibility to trade through their preferred counterparties, minimizing their internal administrative burden.

Full integration with the risk reporting capabilities of LumRisk, a LumX group subsidiary, provides LumMap clients with a comprehensive view of portfolio risks through a powerful set of web-based reports and dynamic analysis tools.
