What is an optimal structure for an ATS fund?

While it will likely be some time before I attempt to start a fund myself, it is never too early to explore the various fund structures for an ATS. I enjoy the idea of allowing smaller investors to get some out of the underperforming fund realm, but on the other side I worry that the management of smaller investors would become too time consuming. What type of fund have you established and how have you balanced the management of clients/partners?

I know Jared, the CEO of QC, started this project as an ATS fund and I'm sure there are others with similar backgrounds. Would like to your experience and insights.

That's a great question and one we've been receiving quite often. In the world of democratizing finance and a new transparency around investing, the answer is not only vague and non-general. It is also changing.

I'm going to put together a blog piece on the subject next week and post it to the QC blog, I'll be sure to share it with you first Kai!

That would be fantastic, thanks a lot Simon looking forward to seeing that piece. I know a lot of us are looking to scale at some point so it would be good information.

I second that, would be a great read.
