The 5%ers Story

The 5%ers’ Funding Traders & Growth Program was founded in 2016 by two forex day traders, Gil Ben Hur and Snir Achiel.

After many years of trading – Gil traded in forex only, while Snir traded in forex, the stock market, and options they were met by a similar problem – both had the skills to succeed in trading but had insufficient capital to gain profits from their potential.

For a while, Gil and Snir traded from their homes using limited capital resources. They expanded their capital through family members joining in and sometimes would manage other traders’ capital for a fraction of the positive outcome.

Upon seeing its popularity and demand, Gil helped establish a premium academy, where teams of selected traders were trained. Their mission was to form a community consisting of trading-partnership frameworks.
These frameworks were the fundamental structures for the traders’ community fund and developed for traders worldwide, from all backgrounds, skills, experience and trading methodology. While this was going on Gil had already hatched an idea and began “running” with it.
Which is where The 5%ers journey began…

In 2016, The 5%ers’ Funding Traders & Growth Program was launched and made available to the public, it was aimed at providing full-time traders with readily available and accessible capital.

The 5%ers IS Our passion, love, and dedication to this profession. And our mission remains to provide traders across the globe with a secure, fair, and honest trading framework, one that enables growth and prosperity with the highest standard of ethics.

Once qualified, you will proceed to step two – at which point you will also be given more money to trade with, continue to trade well and you will find that our growth milestones are easily achievable and not far apart, with each of them providing you with more capital and a greater earning potential.
