eToro was founded in 2007 with the aim of opening up international markets to anyone who wants to invest simply and transparently. The platform has developed an original approach with Copy Trading. This functionality allows users of the platform to “copy” the positions taken by an eToro member in order to model their investment strategy on theirs. Concretely, when the copied trader carries out a transaction on the platform, it is automatically reproduced in the portfolio of users who have chosen to copy his movements. As copied traders are often experienced, they provide real expertise to eToro users. As on a social network, they exchange regularly with their community to explain their investment strategy.

The eToro group brings together the eToro platform, an investment and exchange space for multiple financial assets, and eToroX, which manages the company’s crypto portfolio and marketplace. eToro, the world leader in social trading platforms, offers individuals the possibility of investing by giving them access to a multitude of financial assets, ranging from stocks to commodities to crypto-assets. The eToro community has over 12 million registered members who share their investment strategies and are free to follow the best of them. The eToro platform allows investors to buy, hold and sell assets, monitor the performance of their portfolio in real time and make transactions very simply and when they want.
