Fabian Gerspacher (@FabianMarco), a 30-year-old from a small village in Germany has his sights set on reaching $1 million in his own eToro account. Enjoying Popular Investor status, he earns a second income in the form of monthly payments and a percentage of his AUM, on top of his earnings from trading and investing, so he just might accomplish this goal.
Fabian has been interested in finance since he was 13 and started investing seriously about 8 years ago. He joined eToro in 2013, initially depositing a small amount to test out the platform. Since then he has been honing his investment skills and gathering a steady following. After an astounding year in 2016, finishing with profits of more than 150%, he remained in the green, finishing both 2017 and 2018 in profit. Over the years, he amassed a growing number of copiers and followers on eToro, totalling more than 4,000 and 54,000, respectively.

One of the best things about financial markets is that your background doesn’t really matter. If you put in the work, study the craft of trading and investment, manage your risks and start with just a little capital, you can achieve success.
Such is the case with Fabian. He grew up in a small town of just 400 people and today his following on eToro is more than 100-fold that number. With the funds allocated to copying him totalling $5 million, Fabian has become a true thought leader and another classic eToro success story.
