I would like to know from the guys that work for the top prop firms (Chicago, New York), what is your payment structure for a hybrid salary/profit-split deal?. IÂ´m in the process of opening a trading group and want to compare our ideas with the already working structures. WeÂ´re planing a minimum salary-based deal with rights to profit split with time and experience (up to 50%), and a bonus based in both individual performance and the overall office gains. Since the thing is developed from scratch, we think that itÂ´s a good idea to keep the profit-split low for the first year and create a risk fund for possible future losses. But once the fund is ready, the payout would immediately rise to normal levels.
