Having a lifelong career in money management and financial education, our head trader was asked to be an expert witness in an international case between an American and Chinese trading firm. Upon arriving in China to observe the company’s practices, he was surprised to learn that the company was training people from all backgrounds to manage their money, rather than just those with financial degrees. This provided the Chinese company with a unique risk diversification model, having multiple traders using diverse strategies. The Apiary Fund was created with a similar premise: allowing anyone the opportunity to not only learn professional money management skills, but also giving everyone the opportunity to trade company money and keep the larger share of the profits. Trading money that’s not their own also helps remove emotional stress from Apiary Fund's traders. Using the internet, the professionals at the Apiary Fund are able to train people all over the world, giving them access to necessary software and training.
The primary purpose of the Apiary Fund is to help people learn how to invest successfully by joining in the active management of an investment fund. Apiary defines success as the ability to generate consistent profits, limit risk, and manage the emotions of investing. It is our goal to increase the number of successful traders and to create a friendly environment where the traders support the community and the community supports the traders.
Successful investing is built on proper education, training and practice. Since traders use the company’s money to trade, it is important to Apiary that we offer the best information, strategies and resources for successful trading. It takes time, dedication and a strong desire to become a successful trader. While we provide training resources and a community of learning, it is our associates’ responsibility to put in the time to study, learn and practice.
The Beeline to Funding is our premier Trader Development System. One of its core purposes is to help investors limit the risk of loss during the critical phase of learning how to trade real money. For this reason, we promise that we will provide funded trading accounts to 100% of the associates who complete the Beeline and meet the following requirements over a 90-day period:
Furthermore, we promise that we will continue to work with an associate as long as it takes until they are funded.
The standard model within the financial services industry is to accept investors’ capital and then manage it on their behalf. We turn this model around by allowing associates who have completed the Beeline to Funding to manage a portion of the Apiary Fund’s money with absolutely no risk to themselves. As such, it is crucial to our success to help our associates learn how to invest correctly. To keep the purpose pure and incentives aligned, we will never ask associates to invest their own capital in the Apiary Fund in any capacity, whether as an investment, security deposit, or reimbursement.
We promise to keep an open mindset and clearly state our expectations. We also will not engage in the typical marketing tactics used in the industry. Many of our traders have done well managing assets in the Apiary Fund and have enjoyed the associated rewards and profits. However, we do not teach or suggest that traders will get rich quick using our system. Two factors have a significant correlation to success: time and activity. It is our experience that associates who dedicate more time, study, and practice have a greater probability of meeting the minimum requirements for funding.
The only required cost to become a trader for the Apiary Fund is the tuition for our Trader Development System and a monthly technology fee. These fees cover the cost of the staff, facilities, training, and technology. The money associates pay for these costs is not used for investment purposes at the Apiary Fund. Apiary may offer additional products or services to complement its core system, but they are only supplementary and not necessary for funding. Due to the proprietary nature of Apiary’s training material, processes and trading systems, Apiary Fund is not able to provide a refund to associates who have logged in and accessed the information and material on the Apiary Fund website. We do, however, promise to continue working with every associate until they are funded, as long as they actively pursue continuous progress through the Beeline.
