Darwinex is a new open financial market approach that allows independent traders around the world to quote their strategies and thus access investor capital. Brothers Juan and Javier Col√≥n and Miguel √Ångel Gonz√°le launched the company in 2012 based on the experience of Javier, a successful independent trader who was frustrated with the poor service provided to traders and retail investors by large institutions. His vision has always been to make financial markets more meritocratic and in turn democratic. The assets that are listed on the Darwinex market are the strategies for buying and selling traders, that is, those responsible for carrying out the operation. These operations, 'packaged' in DARWIN form, are the listed asset that investors can buy and sell. Darwinex is a fintech reinterpretation of two activities regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom. On the one hand, it acts as a 'Broker', as it allows users to operate in futures, stocks, commodities and currencies, with the voluntary option to quote DARWINs. On the other, as 'Manager', because it controls the market exposure of investors, replicating the timing of the strategies, with a constant VaR and common to all DARWINs. The fintech company has received a total of 6 million euros in investments thanks to the support of various business angels. Darwinex has more than 4,000 clients that generate more than 350,000 euros of monthly income and operates from its offices in the United Kingdom and Spain. Darwinex offers three main advantages for traders: visibility and credibility with investors through a verified track record where meritocracy is the game's rule; a legal way to manage money from third parties under its regulatory umbrella; and protection of your intellectual property. For investors, Darwinex facilitates access to strategies uncorrelated with the market, which until now has only been possible for large assets. It also acts as a proprietary risk engine that offers a layer of risk independent of traders, as well as the possibility of aligning the interests of investors with traders. Trades only receive benefit if they generate them. Through this innovative system, Darwinex enables the trader and retail investor to compete on equal terms with large institutions. Through its collaborative trading platform, certain information is shared for the benefit of the entire community, fostering a more meritocratic and democratic market.
