Thousands of trading strategies are listed at Darwinex. Our algorithmic risk manager standardizes risk across all listed strategies to deliver investors a fixed target monthly VaR of 10%, hence transforming them into investable assets – called DARWINS – that are comparable on an apples-to-apples basis, and demonstrate a risk profile equivalent to that of an average mid-cap stock.
A DARWIN is an investment product uncorrelated to other financial assets because traders trade both long and short indistinctly. This adds a diferential value for investors who pay traders 20% of their profits in exchange of investing in their DARWINs.
Besides being offered to investors as an investment product, DARWINs also participate in DarwinIA, a monthly trading challenge allocating up to € 4.5 million to the best traders each month.
Just like other financial assets, DARWINs quotes offer information that, analysed individually or together with information from other DARWINs, represent datasets that can be exploited for profit – by both the trader and potential investors.
As firm believers of the value of information in our community dataset, we offer access to both the data itself and an execution API to enable data-savvy community members to tap into it.
The Darwinex Community Forum is home to traders and investors sharing their market and DARWIN data analyses on a daily basis.
Darwinex enables us to access third-party capital in a legal and transparent way. Their anti-copy system is fundamental to us.
I have been looking for ways to offer my trading experience to investors while keeping my trading systems confidential and complying with regulatory requirements for quite some time now. Luckily now there is Darwinex.
In Darwinex I feel I am part of a big family where I can trade and/or invest in other traders or colleagues. True traders dont sell courses or EAs. I believe that true traders are fund managers that make money growing investors money.
I believe that Darwinex is disruptive for both traders and investors since it helps to converge the information asymmetry between potential investors and traders and allocate capital to great strategies that would otherwise have no business in entering the industry.
In contrast to other existing initiatives, Darwinex offers three main benefits to traders: a legal solution to access third-party capital under their regulatory umbrella, protection of intellectual property preventing traders strategies from being compromised, and visibility and credibility before investors through a track record verified by a third, independent party based on meritocratic criteria.
Darwinex is an FCA regulated broker and asset manager that offers an innovative hedge fund as a service model to retail and professional traders alike. Under this model, Darwinex applies a risk overlay to an underlying trading strategy, which is then listed on exchange and made available to the $55 million in third party capital on the platform. Unlike competitor platforms, Darwinexs risk management overlay standardizes risk across the entire spectrum of trading strategies, thereby facilitating an apples to apples comparison for investors.
We are here to turn trader talent into an asset class
The company enables traders to list their trading strategies on our Exchange, and tap investor capital. The traders trades and strategy are wrapped into an asset called a Darwin, risk normalized to a fixed target VaR. Users can buy a Darwin which means that any money they invest will be traded exactly how the trader would his/her own on the underlying strategy. There are traders who are better than your bank and financial advisor but you cant invest in any of them. We are here to turn those guys into an asset class you can then buy and whenever they win you make money along with them, Juan Colon, co-founder and CEO of Darwinex, told CNBC.
Shareholders of Darwinex explicitly state that they do not intend to ever operate as a market maker. The message to clients appears loud and clear, the firm will remain committed to STP execution in order to retain the members of its community. The company is one of the few in the industry which has gone an extra mile to educate traders and provide them with adequate information on key aspects to avoid losing money on the market.
