How it works
Indirectly manage 3rd party capital under the coverage of Darwinex's FCA (UK) asset management license.
We apply a risk management layer to your trading strategy transforming it into a new asset class, the DARWIN. It will replicate your entries and exits paying wholesale brokerage fees, 60% cheaper than retail.
Trading at wholesale rates and earning 15% in performance fees matches earning 20% in performance fees with retail commissions.
DARWIN leverage is defined by our risk management algorithms. All DARWINs trade with a target risk level within the range of 3.25-6.5% monthly VaR at 95% confidence.
This risk management by Darwinex algorithms is entirely independent from that of the DARWIN provider. This enables compliance with regulatory requirements thus ensuring that you can get paid performance fees from our asset manager.
Your trades are not visible in real-time. Others only see in real-time your DARWIN's return but can't see underlying open trades.
This way it's guaranteed that investors pay us 20% of their profits from the DARWIN. If we showed them open trades, they could replicate your strategy on our platform investing only a small quantity and copy the strategy with much more capital outside of Darwinex or could even sell the signal without you knowing it.
How Performance Fees Work
Darwinex charges a 20% performance fee on any 3rd party profit in DARWINs. 15% is for you, 5% for Darwinex.
Performance fees get paid quarterly on a High-Water Mark basis. An Investor's first investment in a DARWIN marks the effective start date of the quarter investing in that DARWIN.
You'll be able to see individual investments and high-water mark quarter ends for every investor in your DARWIN, updated daily.
$2.8 M paid
So far we've paid DARWIN providers in excess of $2.8 million in performance fees. This information is public and is updated daily on our website.
