Taxation of investment management company with foreign ownership

Registered users do not see advertisement
I would like to set up an investment management company in the US that invests money for Asian investors in US stock markets. The brokerage account would be with a US brokerage firm.

- I set up an investment management company as an LLC with flow through taxation in Delaware or another tax-favourable state. The LLC is the custodian of the managed account into which investors deposit funds.

- The investment company is owned by two non-US persons living outside of the US with no physical presence in the country per tax year. All investors are foreign as well.

- All work the US company provides is done from outside of the US. The LLC is the administrative contact for the brokerage account with the US-based broker.

What is the US tax situation and tax rate for both the fee income ("income of the LLC") and the trading profits ("capital gains and dividend income of foreign investors")?

Does anybody know? Many thanks!
