Is it my time to strike out?Subscribe
I wanna get a gauge on whether is it my time to strike out with my own HF. I'm currently in an established fund with shared track record. Envious of being the fund manager and CEO at 40 at my own place adds impetus to me starting on my own.
My stats are:
- Top undergrad target school. No masters, no MBA.
- 5 years as analyst over two HFs. No banking experience.
- Track record of strategy I co-developed. 4% returns 0.7 Sharpe over 1 year live record trading an AUM of 5m.
- Investments over G10 currencies hedged using major index futures.
I'm being realistic. If I can get 50m at 1% management, that'll be half a million to start me of with rental, hiring and systems for the first year. I'm looking at Hong Kong or Singapore as my base.
I got a chance?
