Hedge funds and investment firms must react swiftly, methodically and successfully when confronted with unexpected business disruptions or else risk significant financial loss.
Effective Business Continuity Planning (BCP) can help minimize financial loss and the negative effects of disruptions on a hedge fund or investment firm’s strategic plans, market position, operations, and reputation.
Eze Castle’s Business Continuity Planning Services (Eze BCP) extend beyond technology to focus on critical operations and processes that hedge funds or investment firms must have available if a disaster strikes. This combined expertise means a client gains a custom, comprehensive BCP plan developed and managed by professionals that understand the client’s business.
Our business continuity consultants will identify and prioritize potential business risks and disruptions based on severity and likelihood of occurrence. In the fast-paced, volatile world of financial services, constantly maintaining normal business operations is crucial – even in the event of an unexpected disaster.
This level of response requires extensive business continuity planning to ensure all aspects of a firm’s business are evaluated and protected.
The group should identify realistic and unrealistic expectations and work together to bridge any gaps between leadership and the established BCP plans. After this successful meeting, we thought it would be valuable to share some insights on the BCP table top exercise process with our readers to spotlight the importance of this activity.


Learn more about Eze Castle's business continuity planning service and how our certified BCP experts can prepare your firm for a disaster.
This guidebook is designed to help hedge fund managers of all sizes develop an understanding of both the BCP and DR planning processes. Eze Castle’s hedge fund BCP experts will collect information on a wide range of areas from recovery assumptions and critical business processes to interdependencies and critical staff.
Our certified business continuity planners will create department, division and site level plans for your business. Business continuity plans are living documents and must be updated annually to ensure they account for changes within the firm as well as any changes in risk scenarios. Since we frequently work with our hedge fund and alternative investment clients on developing comprehensive business continuity plans (BCPs), we feel it is important to review and test our own BCP procedures on a regular basis to ensure they will meet our most current business needs in the event of a disaster. A BCP table top exercise is an informal brainstorming session used to encourage participation from business leaders and other key employees. Gather the firm’s executive team (and any other individuals within the organization that play a leadership role in the BCP activation process) in a conference room-type setting that is conducive to open discussion and interaction.
Once the scenario has been established, the members of the management team will break down what steps need to be taken (and in what order) to ensure all employees are safe and accounted for, communications are made to all necessary parties and the business remains operational.


Our Eze BCP consultants are certified experts in business continuity planning and possess deep knowledge of the unique operations of financial services firms. BCP table top exercises are conducted to provide an example of how the management team would work together to get the organization through a disaster.
The group covers all of the actions necessary to ensure employees are safe and accounted for and the business can continue to operate.
And our hedge fund business continuity consultants work with clients to address the full spectrum of BCP. Even just a few moments of downtime could be extremely costly, so it is essential that firms implement sound business continuity procedures.
To this end, Lisa Smith - one of our certified business continuity professionals - and her team recently conducted a BCP table top exercise with our management team here at Eze Castle. Read our complete Manager's Guide to DR and BCP for a comprehensive overview on hedge fund business continuty best practices.
