  "Interesting. Asset Management Company of a hedge fund going public Could be part of FIG's meinatrkg strategy to expand its Assets Under Management (AUM) size by flaunting its Public status. A public company offers better transparency ( in comparison with a lowly regulated hedge fund) and large pension / University funds would flock to it for this very reason.By going public, I think FIG lends an element of credibility and permanence to its business model so that it holds out to other hedge funds ( facing exodus of its star fund managers ) to turn in their investments for FIG to manage. Thus remaining unaffected by star attritions. There are downsides, of course. The quality of investment decisions would vary from that of (the exiting) fund manager and may be FIG assumes that investors are Manager agnostic ( not always) and would stick with the FIG.It could also go against the wishes of the investors in the fund. Normally accredited investors ( including individuals with a min networth, Funds with some min. no. of qualified investors etc., alone are eligible to invest in hedge funds ) prefer a hedge fund, owing to its low regulatory oversight enabled by its in-built and permitted opacity. This brings down compliance costs ( SOX Compliance cost for a mid-sized company is about $ 2 mm ) of the fund manager. By going public, it is deprived of this immunity and relative obscurity that comes with it. By submitting itself and its investment processes ( and the hedge fund itself ) to higher level of probity by SEC and other regulatory peek-ins, its investment strategies are no longer confidential. Everything is laid bare for others to emulate and the arbitrage opportunity vanishes quickly. FIG will have to spin innovative strategies all the time since the viginity of the strategy lasts only till its next periodic filings with the regulators.Demand for anonymity prefered by qualified investors in a hedge fund will no longer be available if the Fund Manager is a Public Company. It would also neutralize the relative obscurity / low compliance cost advantage conferred by the hedge funds to its qualified investors who are locking themselves into this asset class for this very reason.But I am sure FIG must have its own reasons outweighing the downsides which occur to me and chances are that I may have missed a whole lot of things here."
