Thanks for the replies. Based on some credible comments and messages I've received, I am incrementally less hopeful of being able to raise any institutional money in the near term.
I suppose I may get lucky and find some one to invest a few mil with me despite the fact that I lack any organizational infrastructure, because my returns are very good, and because they happen to find me trustworthy. However, I am increasingly lead to believe that this scenario requires a bit of luck on my part. If any more people with some experience raising capital can add additional insight, it would be greatly appreciated.
Also, unless you have in-house or do it yourself, a capital intro marketer could raise money for you, but he takes up to 5% of the amount in a one time charge to you. The business is full of rabid individuals and you're just a tool unless you get to the big time.
I have a suggestion for you. Start a blog or website commenting on trades you take. Post trades and monthly/quarterly/yearly returns. Utilize social media like Twitter. You will surely get a following then, and you may be surprised to find someone willing to invest in you.
