Nick Bortot is the Founder & CEO at BUX, Europe’s largest mobile trading platform with an incredible 250,000 active users. In his former life he was one of the driving forces behind the Dutch market leader in online brokerage, BinckBank. There he held several commercial positions before he was elected member of the executive board. After having spent five years in the boardroom, Nick started dreaming about a new company that would make the financial markets both fun and exciting. It is Nick’s vision that loads of people are interested in the financial markets, but only a small part of this group really acts on it. Why? Because many brokerage platforms are overly complicated. That is why Nick launched BUX in September 2014: a trading app that makes trading extremely straightforward, fun, exciting and educational. BUX is present in the Netherlands, UK and Germany and has attained many incredible mentions and awards including being named on the European Fintech50 2015.
