Do I take the safe bet after grad?Subscribe
So I’m wrapping up my finally year in university and have been proposed with two very interesting opportunities.
Start my own fund or take a $250k all-in comp ball-park range.
A little primer. I’ve been very blessed to work with some very high net worth individuals and have been mentored by a lot of them in other stuff. In my past 2 years I’ve worked as a prop trader under a large desk and have been given real-risk and a small book in addition to the main book. I’ve notched a name for myself and a lot of these mentors have interest in raising me capital and deploying in some interesting spaces where I have a discernible edge.
My question is, what risks am I overstating/understating in starting a small fund (Most infra is already set up) $50m and what are some risks down the line?
