The democratization of FX education: Tradimo CEO Sebastian Kuhnert puts top educators in one platform

Educational resources available to FX traders are becoming ever more sophisticated. Today, FinanceFeeds spoke to Sebastian Kuhnert, CEO of Tradimo on the launch of a new platform which places the leading FX educators in one place. FX education is very much a FinTech orientated experience these days as sophistication leads the way among retail traders

The power of the crowd is very important these days, especially when it comes to educational resources and social trading services that are provided to an ever more sophisticated and knowledgeable retail audience.

Traders that are looking to hone their skills via a comprehensive set of educational tools have a far more demanding scope and set of requirements than they did just two or three years ago, therefore the providers of such resources have moved their development on in order to keep pace with this rapidly evolving service, as well as operate in a more FinTech-orientated environment than the previously preferred sales and retention-led methodology.

Today, Tradimo CEO Sebastian Kuhnert spoke to FinanceFeeds about the company’s new platform which brings together what the company considers to be the most prominent financial educators and hosts them in one place in order to provide a comprehensive choice to traders, from one platform.

“The idea was simple: We have reached a great achievement – more than 150,000 people per month come to Tradimo now and we were wondering how we can scale it further and make Tradimo more approachable and personal at the same time” explained Mr. Kuhnert.

“We see that learning platforms such as coursera, udemy and udacity have done great jobs, but that the equivalent in finance is really still missing and decided to focus on making just that, a platform for all great financial minds to share their knowledge with the world” he said.

“Currently, financial educators face huge obstacles: There is a lot of content out there which makes it hard to get good exposure and at the same time it’s tough for the consumer to identify which content is high quality since it’s become easier and easier for content to look good. But does it hold value?” – Sebastian Kuhnert, CEO, Tradimo

“That’s where a platform such as Tradimo with its many users will quickly help other users separate great from mediocre content. And that’s what the internet is for: To give the best content the largest distribution” enthused Mr. Kuhnert.

“Tradimo’s new learning platform will week by week become a better place to fulfil this mission so that everyone can find the best solution for their own money.”

Going beyond day trading

“We are also going beyond daytrading with our platform. We want to be a place for people to learn to take care of their money generally, making this a great place for any FinTech, bank, broker, financial professional and experienced retail client to share high quality knowledge” said Mr. Kuhnert.

“Tradimo sees itself in the role of providing great technology, advise on content production and help with localisation so that e.g. successful English instructors can also gain entrance into the Chinese market where we’re growing exponentially” he concluded.
