Hello, anyone !
I’m an individual trader managing my own funds. Right now I’m seriously considering creating my own hedge fund. I do not have any significant experience in this area, so I decided to ask few questions here. Two main points for me are
1) Availability of my fund’s results for institutional investors, that might be interested in investing to my fund.
2) Possibility of keeping overall costs, including audit and legal fees, as low as possible.
Other things that are not clear for me is country of registration, possible structure and whether my auditor should be one of the “Big Four”. Also I’ve read about incubator funds but I’m not sure whether institutional investors threat their track records seriously. Any opinion about that ?
Another moment that I do not understand properly is the amount of money that I should invest in fund initially. Whether 100k USD of 500k USD make any difference ? If it does matter, on the initial stage I plan to trade 200.000 USD of my own money and hope to raise up to 50 mln USD in few years.
Also there may be other things that I’ve not mentioned due to lack of experience, so I ask everyone to feel free expressing everything that comes to mind regarding this topic.
Thanks in advance.
