Ever heard of someone making the leap from alpha capture?

I am a contributor to 2 of the top alpha generation hedge funds in the world and have been killing it the last 3 months (as long as I have been doing it). I had 27% alpha in September, 7.69% Alpha October, and so far in November I am at 5% alpha. While I am being paid $30-10k a month together by both of them -- I'd really prefer to be a PM. Is anyone out there experienced with these alpha capture programs and has anyone ever heard of one of these funds saying, you are doing really well -- how about you come work for us? I'd really like to work directly for them.

Why don't you start your own fund?

If you sort of go by the mantra that it doesn't make financial sense to start a slim pickens hedge fund with anything less then $30m -- my age combined with the fact I have never actually run money -- would be pretty prohibitive. Anyone else?

I'm a bit confused as to why this thread hasn't seen more action.

Perhaps people don't believe the #'s you're posting, but if they are true you are doing quite well.

You basically started in August/September of last year, perhaps you need a larger sample size (1-2 years) in order to show what you are generating is sustainable?

Hey dude - I'm trying to get into alpha capture. What funds did you contribute to? I assume one was MarshallWace. Any advice?

is that $30 to $10,000, $30 is laughable, how are you doing these days, still doing alpha capture? which networks are you on, how does one join them, possible to join as individual contributor?
