While looking around at the leading Darwin’s with the most invested, one thing struck me. One of the best performing Darwin’s has very little of its own capital, yet it’s heavily subscribed with investor capital. While I do believe the Darwin’s themselves are as good as they look, it does sit slightly uncomfortably with me! Anyone else think so or is it just me?
My own Darwin does not currently have a great deal of capital in it (not for long!!) but I myself feel more comfortable trying to establish good performance prior to the avalanche of investors that are obviously hiding from me at the moment . I’m not sure if I plan to do any investing myself, but for my own investing I would want to see that there is skin in the game for everyone involved and not just the investors.
p.s. this is not a criticism of the fantastically performing Darwin’s (with a hint of Jealousy!) but merely an observation on investment behavior.
Should there (could there) be a way of measuring “skin in the game” for Darwin’s that take on investors. Bearing in mind that the best trader on Darwinex could be someone with very low capital and means???
