In episode 2, Javier Colón shares what Darwinex has learned through time and over various iterations of the D-Score that have lead to its current state as deployed on the Investor Platform.

5) Impact of the new D-Score on Investment Attributes

In episode 5, Javier Colón sheds light on where the new D-Score leaves existing Investment Attributes at Darwinex.
