| Multistrat terms for PM'sHi,
I thought it would make sense to compile payout terms and drawdown limits for the major multistrats in one place, rather than scattering through different posts. If you know (directly) of terms for PM's in different asset classes, post below and I will keep a list up here. Everyone's deal...|| 9 months 3 weeks|
