Yoni Assia is the CEO of multi-asset investment platform eToro. He founded the company in 2007, and has successfully presided over the growth of what is now a worldwide investment network that enables 16 million users to connect, share, trade and invest in the global financial markets. Yoni is a passionate leader (which often results in excessive use of the word 'awesome' and more than a few high-fives in the office), and it is his vision to disrupt the traditional banking industry and replace it with an online, transparent alternative that has driven eToro's success to date. Yoni is a member of the YPO, and was included by Financial News in its prestigious Fintech 40 ranking and by City A.M. as a Fintech 100 top influencer. This year, he was named as one of Fortune's 40 under 40.
Whichever way you look at it, the last decade has seen fintech drive unprecedented change in financial services. Billions of dollars of funding has given rise to thousands of new fintech players who are rewriting the rules in every corner of our industry. Competition gave way to collaboration and now coopetition as the threat of Big Tech looms over the industry.
As we enter a new decade, the future of the fintech industry is at a crossroads.
In this session, Alex Reddish, CCO at Tribe Payments, Yoni Assia, Co-Founder and CEO at eToro and Keith Grose, Head of UK at Plaid will provide a glimpse of the what the fintech world will look like in 2030 and outline the key choices that fintech firms large and small will need to make if they are to be successful.
