Hello, I have recently started my own capital management company and am hoping to get some feedback from those of you who were once in my shoes as a startup business and succeeded in your endeavours. I have been in touch with a prime broker and they are willing to do business with me but want to see a minimum of 50k in AUM within 8 weeks of startup. My problem is I dont know how I am going to come up with that amount of capital so fast. Do I hire money raisers and give them a percentage of my incentive fee paid out on the total $ they bring into the business for a certain period of time? If this is the answer where do I find these types of people and will they do business with someone who is just starting out with only 4 months of track record? I currently am thinking about offering 3 months with no incentive fee's charged to any new clients I bring on. Is this a successful strategy? I am not looking for people to tell me I am crazy for starting a business and what a serious matter it is to handle others money. I have been trading for 6 years and in the last 2 years have managed friends/family accounts successfully. I know the risks involved. I also am in the process of getting regulated and licensed by NFA/CFTC. Any feedback is appreciated, also if anyone is interested in helping me and needs more info about my operation please PM me and I will provide you with the link to my webpage.
