Regardless the target performance, a business taking deposits from public needs some kind of license in EU. Even acting as financial advisor or even wealth manager requires some form of clearance from financial regulator. A full banking license in EU is probably overkill. But perhaps you could consider forming a Credit Union. The purpose of a Credit Union is to provide financial services to its members.
So you could ask a membership fee that would make your trading capital.
Credit Unions are less regulated than banks and therefore more flexible.
You can also look for so-called offshore finance structures in BVI, Seychelles, New Zealand or Urugay.

You want to start a hedge fund with other peoples money ( or some of your own money + other peoples money)

How do you expect other general public to believe you without any proof of your past REAL trading record etc
