The first program of its kind, the Currensee Trade Leaders™ Investment Program makes the foreign exchange (Forex) market accessible to investors and financial institutions of all types – without having to be expert traders. The program delivers the track records and
risk managementpractices of Trade Leaders, members of a select network of emerging foreign exchange managers – some hand-picked from the robust Currensee social network and others recruited from some of the top CTA and asset management firms across the globe. The program enables successful Trade Leaders to be compensated for what they do best – trading – without the tedious effort of recruiting customers, managing money and reporting results.
What is the process for becoming a Trade Leader?
Start by filling in and submitting your Trade Leaders application. A member of the Currensee Trade Leaders Management Team will contact you and you’ll begin the review process. We’ll send you an overview of the steps you’ll need to complete and you can read more about the Currensee Trade Leaders Due Diligence Process to familiarize yourself with how we analyze and select new Trade Leaders. The first step will be to open your Forex brokerage account to your Currensee account. We will walk you through all of these steps after we receive your application.

As a Trade Leader you get paid for successful trading.
