Creating a DARWIN provides you with an additional source of income because the traders receive 20% of the net profits obtained by the investors in their DARWIN.
A DARWIN is a liquid financial asset that is listed on the DARWIN Exchange (Darwinex) and replicates a trader’s strategy whilst taking into account Darwinex's risk manager. The risk manager acts so as to protect our investors’ capital.
Its quote price is determined by the return built up since the DARWIN's inception.
Advantages of listing a DARWIN
- Extra income. Creating a DARWIN provides you with an additional source of income. Traders receive 20% of the net profits obtained by the investors in their DARWIN. This 20% is called the Performance Fee.
- DarwinIA. Through the DarwinIA trading challenge, Darwinex invests every month a maximum of 5 million euros of notional capital in the 80 top DARWINs as classified by our rating algorithm. This capital is invested, without interruption, for six months. Your DARWIN could be one of them!
- IP protection. No investor will be able to see your open traders. Darwinex ensures that the only way to "copy" a trader's strategy is by buying the DARWIN which replicates the underlying strategy.
- Legal coverage to be paid for investor profits. Darwinex is regulated by the FCA (UK) as a broker and as an asset manager. We offer legal coverage to traders so that they can get paid 20% of the net profits their investor make.
Healthy leverage & continuous improvement
- Don't abuse your account's leverage. Managing a DARWIN provides you with a way to leverage investor capital instead of putting your own capital at risk with excessive account leverage. Trading with a healthy leverage is a pre-requisite for obtaining sustainable returns on the medium and long term.
- The analytical toolkit that accompanies DARWINs can help you improve on a continuous basis.
