Starting commodity hedge fund in Zug (seeking advice & investors)

Hello,
I am UK citizen, have ben living in Zug for 3.5years, holder of B permit, wih 15 years of experience in commodities with banks and commodity trading companies. Today I am planning to set up my own commodity hedge fund in canton Zug (tax and current residence being the main drivers for the location). If someone can share similar experience, which could be relevant to my situaton, this would be much appreciated. Also, if you have some trading or commodity experience and/or willing to co-invest / enter as a partner, you may contact me too.

Re: Starting commodity hedge fund in Zug (seeking advice & investors)

depends on how you want to structure your "fund"

do you want to run a proprietary trading firm based in zug?

or do you want to set up a fund with outside investors in an offshore jurisdiction, with your zug company acting as the manager/advisor?

there are multiple ways to go about this, depending on your intentions and your desired tax outcome. best to get qualified help (unfortunately not me because i have my own obligations )

May I ask what your experience is? Have you ever started a fund, found investors, dealt with PBs, negotiated with counterparties, etc?

I have been working in the alternative industry since 2000 (Global Macro, Long/Short, Emerging Markets) as a portfolio manager and strategist.
I don't have legal knowledge about the matter but if you like to have a chat let me know.
