Vision - Home to traders

We’re the ecosystem giving traders* equal opportunity, where merit alone drives outcomes.

* Trader = he who invests effort, in addition to capital, into capital markets.

Mission - we fast-track traders

...aligning their incentives with ours, as well as those of fellow traders, to pool our collective talent, information and capital for private and social benefit.

Pooling effort / capital / information empowers all with better access to:

Quality Education

certified by Darwinex and/or community members


to open and close trades on the best terms

Real time Information

by the community (individual & trader collective), for a fair price

Investor capital

with the highest profit participation in the market

Values - our compass

What makes our mission worthwhile is that we breathe by these values, every step of the way.

Focus on impact

Our vision is ambitious, but our time and resources are limited. Every decision, big or small, short or long term, maximises the contribution of our (funds / talent / time) to the vision. Evolution = question the best use of resources, at all times.

Take calculated risks

We generate impact because we’re nimble. Agility implies risks, and that’s a good thing. Any risk where client resources (capital, data) are not at stake is worth it if the odds are good enough. Playing it safe is the riskiest gamble.

Empower clients & employees

We reward contributions on merit - regardless of who contributes. We do this because we need the best employees devoting their talent & effort to the vision, and the best traders to entrust us their capital and intellectual property.

We’re transparent

Our business is regulated to custody customer capital and information. We earn employee, client and regulator trust by being as transparent as we can within respect for employee & customer privacy, as well as the law.

We’re decent & humble

We build the product we love to use: if it’s not worth our savings, it’s not worthy of yours. In building it we treat customers, employees and providers with confidence in ALWAYS doing the right thing: decency & humbleness are the best ways to commanding respect.
