First post, but I have been a fan of the site for a while. Question is: Where do the experienced(positive track record) prop guys go for the best deal without using exaggerated leverage? Does anyone know of some respected hedge fund seeding programs? A little background: I have traded at two top twenty investment banks and at a hedge fund for over ten years. I trade equities, futures, and forex. I am interested in building a marketable track record and would like to know where the best place to do this would be. I have had a positive, if infrequent, trading record in my personal account for years, but have started trading in my p.a. on a daily basis for the last five months. The hedge fund I work for tracks how I do against various benchmarks(ie. we do have some discretion), so I do have a longer track record, as well. I am looking to make this move at the end of this year, when I will have a full year track record in my p.a. under my belt. I would like to move to a prop shop that lets me trade for the house or into a hedge fund seeding program. An ideal situation would let me trade from home, but I am willing to move anywhere to make this happen. I know that most seeding funds are hard to get into and will give you a bunch of money($10M-25M+), but offer a bad split(10-20%) of the profits. I have seen on this site that the Bright Trading and Assent's of the world give you a great payout, but will let you hang yourself with exaggerated leverage. I am willing to use reasonable leverage(2-3X) and put up some of my own money. I am willing to take a reasonable split of the profits. Ideally, I wouldn't have to use any of my money at all, but I wouldn't be paid unless I show a profit. I have a sound strategy(ie. others have used it profitably for years, but, it's not a holy grail) and would be willing to learn new ones, as well. Where can I trade for the house without all the leverage? Is anyone in a seeding program they really like? I can't seem to find an ideal situation and would really appreciate any help. If you are uncomfortable posting a name, please send me a private message. Thanks!
