Lads/lasses, I've been toying with the idea of starting an investment company and looking for a little info. Basically I already invest globally on my own (through my IBC) and I get pretty good returns. I'm looking to offer this to friends/family initially with a goal of eventually offering to the public if all goes well. It's not intended to be a massive venture or undertaking; just compliment what I'm already doing. I considered either charging a small fee of the profits, or perhaps taking loans and paying investors a decent interest rate; or both. I'm not sure if there's any difference legally though it seems there would be. Seychelles doesn't seem to require any special licenses etc from what I can find. Correct me if I'm wrong. Would this be a decent jurisdiction to start with? Any recommended lawyers I could contact? Cheers!
