Maybe some investors think that way, it makes sense. However I understand some traders could feel more confortable don´t risking their own money, and trade better with less pressure. You know, when you trade using money you need to pay your bills often times you modify your trading habits and it is just the beginning to lose money. Or like myself, I started trading a 500$ demo account, and now I feel more confortable trading a similar amount in real, it is just a mental stuff, but I prefer not to change it, since my goal is not to make tons of money investing my own money, but showing good trading results to investors who wish invest in my Darwin, and of course I trust Darwinia can give my good rewards too. Anyway, I think there are all kind of investors, some will see trader equity, anothers experience, performance...etc...In short, I believe if you as trader can prove a medium-long term successful strategy you´ll have investors. Good trading!
