Have you ever dreamed of being a professional trader or managing an investment fund but feel your location or lack of an ivy league education is holding you back? Financial market democratization is accelerating, and Scandinavian Capital Markets is taking it to a whole new level.

Asset management firm Scandinavian Capital Markets has launched their funded trader program, offering capital for traders to manage, providing they pass a simple introductory exercise.

Internet connectivity, ease of access to educational resources, and technological innovation are making location and education irrelevant. You don’t need to be in New York, London, or Hong Kong to be a money manager or trade for an asset management firm. Forex and cryptocurrency aren’t taught at universities. Therefore, this opportunity is open to anyone, regardless of your educational background or location.

The funded trader program we recently launched offers traders up to $1,000,000 in funding. To be accepted into the program, you must pass a simple assessment that demonstrates your trading capabilities.

We started life as an asset management firm catering to high-net-worth investors looking for managed investment opportunities in the forex market. In recent years, we’ve been looking for ways to make our boutique trading services more inclusive. This initiative allows any trader to try out and become a trader for Scandinavian Capital Markets’ money management division. 

“Some of the most consistently profitable traders in the world aren’t based on Wall Street or Canary Wharf; they’re working from their homes, hundreds, even thousands of miles away from major financial centers. We’re looking for the best traders out there to enhance our strategy portfolio.” Commented Jamie Saettele, Chief Technical Analyst at Scandinavian Capital Markets.

The assessment requires traders to generate 10% profit without exceeding a daily 4% loss or a 5% account drawdown. There is no deadline to complete the assessment. When a trader passes the assessment, they’re given from $25,000 to $1,000,000 to manage, depending on the selected tier.

Every trader is encouraged to register for an assessment. There is no limit to how often you can perform an assessment, and failures will not impact eligibility once you succeed. Interested traders can learn more about the funded trader program at the company's website.

If you’re accepted into the program, you are essentially a trader for Scandinavian Capital Markets’ portfolio of forex and cryptocurrency trading strategies offered to investors. Traders earn 75% of investors’ performance fees, and Scandinavian Capital Markets keep 25%.

Scandinavian Capital Markets provides traders with a state of the art trading platforms, like MetaTrader 4, and the best possible forex and cryptocurrency trading conditions. Traders also have access to a trader dashboard to monitor key performance indicators and earnings. 

We are based in Sweden and offer clients a gateway to the highly desirable Swedish forex trading environment. We are authorized by and registered with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen, Registration No. 80438), which oversees one of the world’s most reputable and stable financial trading markets.
