I am looking to reduce my cash position and am considering placing some of it with managed funds. Since I have never used MF before I would appreciate some assistance. However, here is where my thinking is so far. No stellar performances. Rather I need a smooth equity curve. The funds are offshore and I am a non US citizen. The fund needs to trade both sides (long & short) All fees must be clearly displayed. No gouging or unexpected charges. I hope this will get the ball rolling.
