Yoni Assia is the CEO of eToro, the world’s largest social investment network with more than 5 million users worldwide. He has shown an interest in finance and computer science since his youth and so decided to merge his passions.

It’s this young CEO’s vision to disrupt the old banking industry and replace it with a new online transparent and social financial system for the benefit for everyone.
