Abstract: By analogy to the class of close-to-convex functions we define a class of analytic functions which are close to a family $ \Sigma $ of mappings onto domains convex in one direction. In contrast to the close-to-convex class the close-to-$ \Sigma $ functions are not necessarily univalent. However, we determine the radius of convexity for $ \Sigma $, and this gives a lower bound for the radius of univalence of close-to-$ \Sigma $ functions. We next derive the coefficient estimate $ \vert{A_n}\vert \leqq n\vert{A_1}\vert$ for close-to-$ \Sigma $ functions and conclude with an elementary distortion theorem.
