Re: How do you start your own Hedge Fund in the UK

this thread is moronic (the type of person who asks these questions couldn’t make money if they knew what the closing price was going to be on Monday) but no1 would set up a HF in the UK and running a ponzi scheme is pretty much impossible if your using a reputable prime broker/fund administrator (I’m no expert but some HFs are structured wherby the manager is seperate from the actual LLC fund and acts an “advisor” with no actual "access" to the funds). a lot of UK HFs are listed in Ireland (some like Brevan Howard even list in London) so to say they are loosely regulated isn't always true.

Iv been making reasonable and consistent returns trading ever since I started I assure you I can make money if I knew the closing price this Monday.

I asked a simple question on how one starts his own hedge fund and all I get is an insult, people talking about ponzi schemes and joking about my question if you don't have the answer or anything constructive to say please don't leave a comment this forum is here to help people out

and for those who think a Ponzi scheme is not illegal feel free to start one up and see how long it takes to get banged up!

Its sad how people ask a genuine question and then get called all sorts of names....

Interesting thread i think, how would one get regulated to trade others money?

I mean, if you can get good returns and pass on a small bit of it, could be a winner

Re: How do you start your own Hedge Fund in the UK

It never ceases to amaze me people who know how to trade and make good money need free advice. Further, why they need other people's money. Can't they just use the markets as a cash machine ? Lastly, why do they feel they own the forum and dictate what people can and cannot say ? Does having unverified ability to trade somehow gives them ownership of forums ? One final point, would they like to start an offshore bank at the same time ?

I think it has something to do with making *decent money* and making *huge insane money*.

Greed comes into play here.

Making hundreds of thousands of dollars per year or making 10s of millions.

That was for Joe

I agree with your post above joe about the trading others money part, you could make a lot more profits trading a 6 or a 7 figure sum than a 4 or a 5 figure one... and if you had agreed a fixed rate of say 20% per year you could make a massive amount if your performance is much higher

Let's look at it this way. If you are not making enough to buy a couple of hours of professional advice on how to set up a hedge fund, you are in no position to make 10's of millions. In fact you are not even in position to make 10's of hundreds.

Why do you have to go to professional right away?

You could post a computer problem on a bodybuilding forum and get great answers...

The OP may just want some info before possibly taking it to the next level

Ponzi schemes, far from being illegal, are actively run and promoted by our own government.
Shhhhhhh! You're giving away all the secrets!

When you are making tons, enough to start a hedge fund, time is money. So in that situation, you would be banging on the professional's door already, rather than getting involved in a bit of b*tch slapping in a forum.

You can start a hedge fund with no money if you like, and just rely on other peoples money

It's pretty hard from what i've read to actually make money trading OPM, as in not under a company or hedge fund, as you need FSA authorisation
