PROVO, Utah, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Apiary Fund (www.apiaryfund.com) today launched globally its Apiary Capital Fund, a new and unique trading fund that allows participants to manage Apiary's money and share in the profits. Apiary Fund first teaches and trains people how to invest, and second, provides a supplementary income by sharing the profits of successful trades in the fund – all with no investment risk to the student.
People can register at www.apiaryfund.com.
"The Apiary Fund specializes in developing investors," said Shawn Lucas, founder and CEO. "There is a difference between learning and doing, and what we offer is a way for people to bridge the gap between the classroom and real life by letting them manage our money. The model is successful because trading activity is diversified among many traders which helps to reduce risk."
Apiary Fund teaches participants how to trade in foreign currencies. The company charges tuition for its Trader Development Program and a monthly access fee to Apiary's technology platform and ongoing training. Associates practice with simulation accounts as part of their training. Associates only need a computer and Internet connection to get started.
Apiary associates do not need to be experienced traders. Most of the successful traders have no previous experience and come from many backgrounds – retirees, single parents, students and people looking for supplementary income.
Once participants reach a level of proficiency, they can become traders using Apiary's funds for real trades. There is no investment required and there is no investment risk.
In order to provide confidence and transparency in the fund, Apiary Fund recently released The Apiary Promise, which promises:
- To keep our purpose and goals pure
- To put education and training first
- To fund everyone that meets our requirements
- To never ask for your investment money
- To open and realistic
- To clearly communicate all costs
- To make it clear what our refund policy is
Apiary recently released its Investor Profile, a personality assessment tool to help investors recognize characteristics that are beneficial or detrimental to their investment strategies.
The Investor Profile combines two of the following four trading personality types through a series of 28 questions:
- Aggressive – Quick to enter a trade. May exit quickly when a loss appears
- Intuitive – Relies on emotional intuition to get in and out of trades
- Analytical – Analyzes every possible variable before taking action
- Methodical – Likely to trade on a system, not much regard to gains and losses
Located in Provo, Utah, Apiary Fund is a private company with a unique trading platform combining a brokerage, commercial finance education and proprietary funds. Apiary trained traders use Apiary's money to make trades and share in the profits. Other than course tuition, there is no personal investment or risk.
