Liechtenstein based prop trading firm The Trading Pit has announced that it has secured €10 million in its latest round of growth funding. The prop trading fintech said that it has secured capital to accelerate its growth initiatives with a mission to become the global leader in online prop trading.
The Trading Pit is now set to enable global access to all major asset classes, including Forex, Futures, Stocks and Cryptos within the next six months. Pinorena Capital was the principal investor in this funding round following its early investment in the company.

“We are very eager to support The Trading Pit considering the company’s exceptional delivery on all fronts of its original business plan. We have been amazed by the strong interest TTP has received from brokers, platform providers, and of course traders in such a short time. This solidifies our belief that TTP’s products and services will fundamentally change the way prop trading industry works today. The fintech start-up has our full support in becoming the industry’s benchmark over the next few years and creating the prop trading, investing, and asset management super app.”
Pinorena Capital, the Estonia based private equity firm led by entrepreneur Illimar Mattus, runs a fintech-heavy portfolio of companies which include Retail FX and CFDs broker Tickmill and social trading focused broker and asset management company Darwinex. The investor added that this funding will assist The Trading Pit in achieving its goals and help in creating a super app starting with proprietary trading and then naturally expanding into investments and asset management. The Trading Pit is building up an ambitious B2B product offering and B2C business development network, from Asia to the Americas. A global network of up to 30 major trading platforms and service providers will feature as part of The Trading Pit’s prop trading infrastructure within the next 24 months, with the liquidity being sourced from over 20 industry-leading brokers.
Christoph Radecker, Founder of Futures.de and Co-Founder of The Trading Pit noted:
“We are pleased to see such a strong commitment from our existing investors which will help us to deliver on all of The Trading Pit’s strategic objectives at a much faster pace. The Trading Pit emerged from the simple concept of giving all skilful traders a fair opportunity to reach success in an environment where there is no conflict of interest, and which has full transparency. Our initial success has convinced us that we need to be much bolder with our plans and execution, and the capital provided by our investors will help us to do exactly that.”
