Hedge fund based in Gibralta

Is there anyway i can find out information about a Hedge fund that is based and operates in/from Gibraltar besides from the company itself ?

I got introduced to a guy who runs a hedge fund in Gibralta and has an average return of 15 percent for the past 20 years(some years up some down).

Is there anyway i can checkup the numbers besides from the papers and stuff he is giving me ?

Thanks for your help.

I guess he cold-called you at work and held a wonderful sales pitch?

This topic is done frequently on this forum and it's good you ask.

The catch is that through all sorts of devious ways, and despite protsting the opposite, this salesman will in all likelihood be taking his commission up from and it will take many many years for your investment to recover to even its initial value.

You are targetted because you are an expat. That puts you in some legal limbo. It would be illegal to sell the same package to a Swiss person.

Just beware.

Sadly some of these advisors even trawl the internet for negative comments about them and then threaten the website owners with legal action.
That's why we don't name them here.

Re: Hedge fund based in Gibralta

This case is not really like that, i got introduced to him through a friend and a formal investor of his...

He told me he had a very positive experience with him but so did all the clients of Madoff till...

I would just like to find a way to do my independent research about it.

And yeas he takes a commission but thats normal in this sort of business...

Thanks though for your warning
