Nearly 60% of those attending said they already trade online, with 34% making between 7 and 33 monthly transactions.

The event had 50 exhibitors and more than 70 meetings organised by brokers and financial institutions which were all over subscribed.
Commenting on the event, Nicolas Bertrand, Head of Equity and Derivatives Markets, London Stock Exchange Group, said:
“The tenth edition of TOL Expo has again proven to be a great success in terms of public attendance and the number of exhibitors present. Traders of all ages and experience look for such opportunities to increase their understanding and to meet each other to discuss the latest innovations. The event has confirmed that the focus on education promoted by Borsa Italiana is supported by the private investor community.
Retail participation is an important asset to the Italian market and as investors become more interested in online trading we will continue to work with them to ensure they have access to the educational tools they require.”
