Baldwreck is right, PheonixCapital does require a disclaimer on the website. He is solicting interest with the "intention" (key legal point) of capital raising for a Capital Management firm. The site briefly taps on the type of strategies available (although very very basic, it still risks the attraction from the uneducated retail sector). Even the registration part of the website requires a section on "Investment required".

My ex-girlfriend is a compliance officer at one of the tier 1 banks, out of curiousity I had her flick over it ;-)

Thanks for explaining your position Baldwreck.

Really pretty complicated all these regulations, lotsa work for lawyers eh.

But then we have Grant here who knows his way round these things very well if one of us wants to go down that route.



Btw, I think that what Phoenix has on offer is pretty valuable, ie the connections to come up with a hundred mill.

He just comes with a pretty expensive price tag from the viewpoint of the trader, ie 75% of ownership for him...

But then again, if this is all above board it would still be a pretty good opportunity for someone talented starting out but without a lot of money at this stage, I mean what options do they have, find a backer, or go join a prop shop, a trading arcade where they get backed too and spend several years building up their stake, or, thirdly, accelerating things up and adding some serious leverage to their career and fortune building by joining a hedge fund where they have an ownership stake.

Hmm.

I don't want to sound rude, but the website looks quite amateurish. Also the prospectus submission does not work correctly.

There are many hedgefunds that have no website at all.
Fact is, those who do not try get nowhere.
If you have the contacts to raise the capital and can attract the people to show you are respectable reward vs. risk then the setup is the biggest headache in this country, much easier in USA. I know a chap who started with 5m 5 years ago and now has 1bln fum with a av. 10% net p.a.. I have had fund of fund guys turn up for meetings and ask me what they should do with hundreds of millions they are unable to place. Money is out there if you have the structure in place and can convince these people you are a good bet.

Dow Jones,

I think the web site is pretty good. Content may not be perfect but given there are no traders at present everything may be regarded preliminary to be improved/revised as and when.
