I am thinking of starting a hedge fund finally. It has gotten to the point that even though I am supremely confident that I can return 300-400% annually, I would much prefer the peace of mind of returning somewhere around 50-100% annually and not going crazy. (I don't intend to debate the probabilities of achieving this goal. For the sake of this thread, assume it is a givin) I have my own reasons for choosing the hedge fund route. One of which is certainly that even running just a 10m account, 20-25% of gains on a piss poor 50% year is more than I can make now. (This would not include of course the money that my own stake in the account would return). There are quite a few threads here that I've read and am rereading now on how to set the fund up. What I'm curious in is how to get investors for this fund. I've heard from maybe 10 people that they want to invest with me, but most are just college friends (and probably not qualified). My father refuses to allow any of his friends from investing with me (though many want to), because if I were to loose any money, they'd get pissed at him. Do you know of any services where I could inquire about getting funding? I'm not exactly sure what I'm asking, and I appear to be rambling, but I'm curious as to where I could achieve at least 10m in funding for a new fund that would hopefully get going by jan 1 2003, if I decide to continue with this process. I'm sure that someone at this forum knows who I should contact.
