Question for those who operate Investment Funds or Investment Clubs


Recommended Posts

I am going to create an investment company. So far I have mostly family members both in Canada and the U.S. who have pledged to allow me to manage their funds. I am planning to fully launch sometime in March of 2013 or Q2 of 2013. I have a few questions though:


What types of trading platforms can any of you recommend ?


Are their any rules or regulations in regards to Canadian advisors managing funds for U.S. citizens ?


Why do some people (Canadians) create U.S. corporations/LLCs and then open Canadian subsidiaries ?



I would greatly appreciate if somebody could answer some (of not all) of my questions.


Thanks in Advance !

generally speaking, its probably easier to start a partnership in the states. I think IB has a platform that allows one to place trades simultaneously on multiple accounts. Saves execution costs and easier to manage.


From my research, there are a large majority of Canadians who do this. But what I can't figure out is why ? Why is it easier to start a partnership in the States ??
