As yet another 1st time poster with a new account (today) I wanted to add a comment to the conversation.
It seems the guy is not looking for a Fund Manager in the classic sense, but someone who might trade an account and have his trades copied to client accounts at appropriate sizes based on balance, equity, or some other multiple. While this can be construed as fund management there are subtle differences in that a client still has a significant degree of overall control (the account is in his name, only he can withdraw funds, the manager has no access, and the client can immediately terminate the arrangement at any time of his choosing).
Of course, in some jurisdictions that would still be a regulated activity as he would arguably be directing client funds, but trade copying is a grey area in a surprising number of 'first-world' jurisdictions and can therefore be done in many places by an individual with no license, no certificates, no registrations.
Basically the guy is asking for people who fit the bill in terms of the trading experience and expertise, what kind of revenue-share deal is on offer, the broker location, the manager location, and the regulatory structure that binds one or both of them.
A fund manager? No way. A PAMM trader? Entirely possible. I know of two people trading with a fully Regulated (including UK FCA) broker with a PAMM/Copying structure, perfectly legally.
I do agree though, it's an odd way to go about hooking up with suitable traders. I would have thought a broker would be monitoring client accounts to identify who the best traders were and approaching them to offer them an opportunity.
This is trading, not gambling
