Please remove this post if it belongs in another forum. The question is, what kind of performance is generally good enough to attract capital for someone looking to start a hedge fund. Of course, this depends on many things, but let's say a person manages to return 100%+ per year over a period of 4 years, trading his 7 to 8 digit personal account, with his worst year being say 85% and no more than a 20% drawdown over the 4 years time... with that being his only history, would these numbers be "a sure thing" to attract large amounts of money. Assume these results are scalable up to 50 million, with results definitely suffering (but no more than a 50% cut in return) if more capital is used up to say 1 billion. In this case, would it be better to limit the fund to a max of 50 million, or let in more money, and have a lower return.
