Australia is an important market for the eToro Group and so I’m delighted we are partnering once again with the Wallabies.
We’ve seen an influx of Aussie retail investors into financial markets over the past 12 months and it’s crucial that we provide enough education to arm them with the tools they need to build their wealth for the long term. Our vision is to open the global markets to everyone and we see this partnership as an opportunity to reach the fans behind the team and get more people interested in investing.
With more than 20 million registered users globally, eToro allows people to choose what to invest in and how to invest to trade themselves, copy another investor or invest in a portfolio.
Rugby Australia Chief Executive Officer, Andy Marinos, said:

We’re incredibly excited to extend our relationship with eToro following the hugely successful eToro Tri-Nations in 2020. eToro’s user base continues to grow at a rapid rate and we want to assist that during our partnership over the next three years, and hopefully long into the future.
We are very close to confirming the Test schedule for 2021 and the calendar will not disappoint, so watch this space.
