    Anyone with experience in this area know what kind of track record potential investors would want before funding a startup hedge fund?

    Could you be a lot more specific?
  3. I don't deal with hedge funds, but worked somewhat indirectly with them at IBs... The only figure I ever heard, was 3 years worth...

    And that is AUDITED.

    I would recommend using at least 2 unrelated methods:

    --- A separate, traded account at a respectable institution. Stay away from small introducing brokers or 2-man shops.

    --- Since you are at the starting end and cannot be tracked by hedge fund type sites, set up an audited account at one of:,,, futurestruth (if automated) or hulberts (if you can get accepted). Also, being on these sites might even get you a couple of leads...
