eToro is shaking hands with the FinTech platform, Acquisition Corp V. The social trading platform announced on 16 March of going public via collaboration with SPAC FinTech Acquisition Corp. V with a $10.4 billion deal.
After the merger, it is expected to be listed on the Nasdaq exchange. The merger of the companies will be named as eToro Group Ltd. In a written statement, FinTech V chairman Betsy Cohen said that its sponsor Fintech Masala is looking for companies “with outsized growth, effective controls, and excellent management teams.”
EToro meets all three of these criteria. In the last few years, eToro has solidified its position as the leading online social trading platform outside the U.S., outlined its plans for the U.S. market and diversified its income streams. It is now at an inflection point of growth, and we believe eToro is exceptionally positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.
We’re excited to share that eToro will become publicly traded through a business combination with FinTech Acquisition Corp. V ($FTCV). Info: https://t.co/gVuS14A3Ak — eToro (@eToro) March 16, 2021
