Hi guys,

I will soon discuss a deal with a small private bank in Europe to distribute a Luxembourg fund that I am considering launching in Q3 2022.

I have never done this kind of deal before, so I just wanted to ask if anybody knows what % of the manager's fees the bank will take to sell/promote the fund to its clients.

The fund is an equity long/short US Futures alternative fund, not an UCITS, the clients are HNWIs, Europeans.

Any other input you may have is always appreciated!

Well done, and good luck.

As in everything, it depends. It may be up to 100% of the management fee, which leaves you with the performance fee. Especially for a start-up fund.

But, and it's a big but, you have to make sure you can cover operational costs. Otherwise it's a big DD flag.

Structure the deal like that. You keep first x amount of dollars for operations, and beyond that they get increasing % of the management fee.
