How do I take my private trading and turn it into a business?



Using the IG platform for number of years I've developed an investment method which outperforms the equity indices. 

I'd now like to transition from trading as an individual to trading as a career.  Where can I best identify the high level facts about what legal regulations are mandatory in the four scenarios listed below; these should include the structure required by the organisation, how funds can be introduced, compliance rules, what fees/commission/profit share we are permitted to charge and anything else relevant.


1.My own capital

2.Funds from close friends and family

3.Capital introduced by ‘registered’ financial advisors, or institutions managing their clients’ wealth

4.Funds introduced from individuals completely unknown to the organisation, the general public.

I would ideally also like assessment of costs for set-up and running in each scenario.

Is there anyone who can provide me some initial advice with the potential of engagement to support developing my plan?
