This is a little premature, but it doesnt hurt to plan early. I have finally turned profitable...YEAH! and found my niche and methodology that works pretty damn well for me. Up about 30% YTD, and think i could maintain a decent track record based on the low risk of my strategy. In three years...with a good track record, i would like to start a fund. Here is the question...I am market neutral...and i hedge...so i cant be a mutual fund. Hedge funds are very restrictive in the way that they attract clientelle.....and i am overseas, so my ability to attract clients would be limited to marketing effforts (which are limited by hedge fund charters and rules). hedge funds charters say you cant market directly...if i understand correctly does anyone know how i can set up an offshore fund where i am permitted to do marketing (only looking to attract about 10mm) in order to finds a client base? each country is differet...should i stay away from te USA maybe? maybe look at people in Candada, Austrailia, europe?
