So I was thinking of emailing a fund manager in Sydney and asking if I could do an internship with them.
All the funds I have found in my search are basically jokes who really don't have any idea how to make money. Can anyone point me to a fund that doesn't make their money from taking fees, that doesn't engage in 100% quant/algo trading, that isn't "market-neutral", that isn't a long-only/private-equity fund, that does employ people who would prefer to be there instead of sleeping at night, that are humble, that have made money before the GFC and during the GFC.
Preferably, the fund would employ a global macro strategy with a focus on absolute performance.
I don't want to be involved with a Nobel prize winner in economics either.
Does anyone know of such a fund?
