So, some of you are aware from my posts that I'm trying to start my own hedge fund. Yes, it's a bit ambitious for someone with a stats background and no finance experience to try to launch a fund, but we have a great system so we're going for it.
Anyway, I just wanted to post that we raised money for the management company's startup costs, and have started getting all our docs done. We'll be launching on August 1st. Whether we have our seed capital by then is an open question, but we're on our way.
Anyone who's interested in the launch process -- ask away! Hopefully my experience can be helpful to some folks out there.
