Up to €10 M notional capital allocated to the best DARWINs every month.
DARWINs each month
What is DarwinIA?
DarwinIA is our monthly capital allocation. We allocate up to € 10M notional to 150 DARWINs every month. We maintain the allocation during 6 consecutive months to incentivize them to trade on the long run.
We pay 15% in performance fees on the profits generated during the 6 months * € 10M = € 60M allocated to DARWINs.
Performance fees are paid out quarterly on a High-Water Mark basis. Allocations are cumulative, the same DARWIN can receive allocation in different months.
We created DarwinIA with the aim to incentivize responsible trading among our traders. As opposed to other trading contests, in DarwinIA prizes are meant to to be given to traders able to deliver consistent returns on the medium term.
D-Score being the most important factor for determining winners, the influence of luck is reduced, enabling allocations to strategies with solid fundamentals for generating returns in the medium term.
The first 150 DARWINs in each month's final ranking receive a capital allocation which is a multiple of the equity in their trading account, with a maximum for each leaderboard position.
For example, the DARWIN in the first position receives an allocation 36 times the equity on the underlying trading account with a maximum of € 500,000; the DARWIN in the second position receives an allocation 35 times the equity with a maximum of € 400,000 and so on.
The final ranking depends on three factors:
Global rating calculated by our algorithms based on the DARWIN's last 9-18 months.
Takes into account return obtained by the DARWIN during the month of the competition.
Compares the DARWINs monthly activity with the average from the previous three months.
