eToro launches innovative CopyFunds investment

One of the world’s largest forex brokers has announced the launch of a brand new ‘themed investment’ scheme.

eToro, the social trading network, has revealed their new offering CopyFunds; investments that work by bundling together financial assets by strategy or theme.

The investments will be created and traded on eToro, widely recognised as one of the globe’s best CFD brokers. CopyFunds are set to enable investors to invest in a bundled group of high-performing traders as well as predefined market strategies.

CopyFunds will be divided into Top Trader CopyFunds and Market CopyFunds. Top Trader CopyFunds will comprise the best performing and most sustainable traders on the network and will be built using machine-learning technology that selects the best performing traders on the eToro network.

Market CopyFunds will be made up of specially-selected instruments such as stocks, commodities or ETFs. These will allow investors to track a wide array of sectors around a defined market strategy.

eToro’s aim is to help investors minimise long-term risk and promote opportunities for growth by creating a diversified investments. CopyFunds will be analysed in depth and rebalanced automatically to maximise the potential of returns for investors.

Yoni Assia, CEO and founder of the CFD broker, said: “We have dedicated the last decade to shaking up the world of trading. With the launch of CopyFunds, we’re taking aim at a closed and traditional fund management industry by combining the wisdom of the crowd and machine learning.”
