In this complete interview in the Wall Street Transcript, Kip Meadows of Nottingham Management details his support system for investment advisors.
“We have been doing the same thing in the open-end mutual fund industry for almost 30 years. That is the way registrations work is that you organize a trust, an investment company. We typically use Delaware Business Trust. Once you have an investment company series trust set up and going, adding additional funds to that trust is much more straightforward and occurs much more quickly. In turn, it is less expensive than starting from scratch. So that is what people call “white label.”
We have several series trusts available and are open to partnering with investment advisory firms to start a new fund within those series trusts.”
