No, I don't think they had a hidden goal.Yes. That's my point. Couldn't happen that their hidden goal was to sell this broker
I think more they have problems improving their financials.
If you look at the top 10 D-Score heroes, 5 of ten are not present anymore. You see that easily at the DarwinIA page if you sort by D-Score.
Similar with the top ten on AuM where more than 50% are suffering since more than 6 months. That also means: no relevant investor fee for Darwinex.
And IMO the worst: no attractive Darwins for big investors. The plan to attract more and bigger foreign capital didn't work until now. IMHO currently missing attractive famous Darwins with open capacity is only one reason for this.
