Anyone interested in having their money managed by me personally?
My current plan is to use the platform at interactivebrokers.com. Your assets will be owned under your name, and under the custody of interactivebrokers.com. I will just have the trading permission.
The fee structure will be
1. Basic fee: 1% of your account size, charged quarterly.
2. Performance fee: If your account returns less or equal to 10% after interactivebroker’s commissions, there is no performance fee. Otherwise, for every 5% additional return beyond 10% return, the fee increases by 1%, and it will be prorated. This fee is charged annually for every annual period.
For example, if your account returns 23%, then the performance fee is (23-10)/5=2.6%.
I don’t plan to get a stock broker license yet (reasons at the end of post), but according to the state laws of California, I can manage up to 5 individual clients without a license. Because I only have 5 limited spots in total, I will rank the preference of the accounts in the order of potential account size, and then on a first-come first-serve basis.
If you’re interested, send me an email to 1stMillionAt33 # gmail.com (changed # to @), with the subject of “Money Management”. Let me know your estimated net worth (including your home equity value), and the account size that you would like to open. The net worth number helps me to decide how aggressively I will act in your account. Make sure that LESS than 15% to 20% of your net worth will be in this account for the sake of diversification. I don’t have a minimum account amount yet, but it’s likely that I will decline if the account size is less than $50K, unless you plan to add more cash after a short period.
I believe this year could be a banner year for commodity in general. Don’t miss the train. I’ve also back-tested my own proprietary buy/sell indicators for a long period, and it out-performed the ETF by about 600%.
P.S. Assume that I have 5 clients of $50K each, returning 10% annually, the total fee that I will get is just $2500. That will be just enough money to pay for stock broker license fee, and I haven’t counted incorporation, tax and accounting services. Are you going to work for a whole year and just get $2500 for it? So if it’s a terribly bad deal for me, it’s probably a good deal for you. Obviously and unfortunately, I cannot guarantee a good performance, but you can look around on this website for my past recommendations and performance.
By the way, to match my current wage, I will need to manage 10+ million. That’s one of the reasons that I haven’t been more pro-active, since going from 0 to 10 million asset will really take some time.
