If I wanted to trade in a separate account in order to have audited performance for marketing to outside investors, do I have to create an incubator in order for an auditor to evaluate my results, or can I just set up a separate account (joint account with my partner)? Do auditors or outside investors really care if you have an LLC or incubator in order to give any credence to your trading results? Sorry to limit this question to only people with actual HF experience. I just didn't want this to be a forum for people with just a notional idea to throw in their two cents. Thanks in advance for any input!
