If you want to start a Hedge Fund

I have seen some posts here with people who wanted more info on fund start ups.

A friend of mine who works for a hedge fund incubator in London, they currently have around $500 mil AUM. They can set you up with compliance and all the tools needed, they have a in house accounting team, lawyers and so on. They provide you with the right contracts.

But its not like you going to start getting investors straight away. They are like a seeding platform that will groom you for about 2-3 years before seeding in exchange for a part of the business. You can still have investors but they will most likely be a close friend.

The minimums are not as much, somewhere around $100k. But the main purpose is for you to build your brand and network hard. more info marcusjohnson2468420 @ gmail .com

Just to understand, I have to pay 100k per year or total for the team of experts.

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

Thanks for the clarification, personally I'll pass (I am not into the sharing economy), but good luck!

silverkas started this thread Well this is pretty much the only way to start a fund at low operating costs. I spent 30k to set up but incubators are for fund managers who are introduced only, you cant just show up. JP Morgan houses alot of hedge funds but they have higher requirements. People who are serious and done there research will understand most methods of structuring a fund.

I might forget to mention some smaller details like monthly costs for regulation and desk fee, but there really small. You need to have a prospectus and all the usual documents. I have seen some serious people on this forum that want to pursue a career in this industry.

silverkas started this thread I dont understand, i did not mention a entrance fee. The requirements are that you need $100k minimum AUM and a thought through strategy with some marketable documents that will be reviewed and adjusted to make regulatory friendly. If you want to skype me or all then do so. kasfx@outlook .com

I can quickly tell if your suited or not with a couple questions.

Have you got 100k to trade and yes trade it through us. You passed immediately no second question needed. If not affirmative then second question is will you be able to get 100k in the near future. if no then sorry it's not for you.

Don't worry about comms as it is all building your track record and after a few years you will get a few billion to trade and happy days.

silverkas started this thread Nick you smart lol and if anyone interested they should be emailing me. The questions are pretty much are common sense, you need a good base capital to start with, you need a thought through strategy. You need to be able to cover the costs of operating expenses. Like any business should. If you seriously considered starting a fund you probably will be already familiar with this structure.

Less likely you will get a billion dollars. Most funds don't get to a billion dollars because of many reasons. scale-ability.

If i don't get serious replies i might have to remove this thread lol wall-street oasis seems to have smarter individuals on there.

Yep, better go there then, because I just don't see how someone with 100k and very good trading strategy will go and trade with you... You can just copy the strategy and reject the application...

So your answer is exactly what I said for you.
In under five hours this forum went from a lot of serious traders who are interested to hurry up and lob me your 100k or i'm off to another forum and your all a bunch of to55ers.
How do you expect people to be patient for 3 years if you can't manage an afternoon?

This is probably the opportunity of a life time. It would be a shame to have the thread shutdown.
