About Skilling

Founded in 2016 by tech and gaming magnates, Henrik Persson Ekdahl, André Lavold and Mikael Riese Harstad, the Skilling group was created with an outright vision of making trading simple and accessible to all.

Recognising that the worlds’ financial markets hold incredible potential to those who know how to harness it and how to play the board of the markets, Skilling has sought to bring trading transparency to a process that has traditionally been overly opaque. The Skilling platform is the result of relentless effort to deliver a secure and transparent trading environment that promises unparalleled user experience to traders of all levels. The company has reimagined the trader’s journey and has built not only a trading experience that is both intuitive and user-friendly, but one that pivots around outstanding customer service and the provision of industry-leading trading conditions.

Skilling provides access to currency and multi-asset trading across more than 800 financial instruments and across three trading platforms. With Skilling you can trade on the world’s most volatile markets: forex and CFDs on indices, stocks, cryptos, and commodities like gold, silver and oil.

Skilling is proud to sponsor the Skilling Open and Magnus Carlsen, and inaugurate together with PlayMagnus the world’s first fully online Chess Tournament. Our sponsorships are purposeful and validate the values for which the company stands. There is a powerful lesson to be learnt from chess grandmasters and a powerful parallel to be drawn with trading –  mastery comes through playing; mastery comes through trading.
