“The rise in self-directed investing and eToro’s growth is underpinned by long-term secular trends in investor behavior. We believe that investors are primarily looking for three things from a platform: (1) simple access to the assets they want to invest in, including crypto assets, (2) an intuitive and user-friendly mobile interface, and (3) financial education, including the ability to draw on the knowledge and insights of other investors. By providing all three in one platform, we are confident that we can lead the democratization of investing and continue to grow our share of an expanding market,” Assia added.
