Maybe not quite so daft a price as it sounds, seeing as the cheapest Cayman hedge fund start up will cost around £25k, often far far more. Then there's just the little problem of FSA regulatory compliance, and, oh yes, finding "sophisticated" investors & raising an absolute minimum of £1m to make it all worthwhile ! Funny how they didn't mention that bit in the ad....................

Jack o'Clubs started this thread Hi Roger,

It wasn't so much the price as the fact that it was on Ebay that tickled me!

I guess Roger would be happy to charter one of his yachts for the board meetings?

Cheers

Since fund board meetings are supposed to be offshore, then somewhere in the Caribbean perhaps ?! A nice little 90 footer should suffice !!
