Very little public information exists about the connection between Shay Ben-Asulin and anyoption.com. The website, anyoption.com has a prominent position in the world of online binary options trading, of which Ben-Asulin is a pioneer. Some have proclaimed that Ben-Asulin, a native of Israel, invented binary options trading, but this is not true. Binary options were a natural extension of options trading, which is a speculation, or gamble, on how well a stock or other asset will perform on the market in the future. Binary options were first allowed in the major markets in 2008.
Although he did not invent binary options, Ben-Asulin did innovate the online trading of binary options. Ben-Asulin is the co-founder of m-Wise, Inc., and he served as Secretary and Chairman of the Board from 2001 to 2007. m-Wise, Inc. is a developer of software and hardware business and content-providing platforms that has since specialized in mobile applications.
Ben-Asulin also founded a subsidiary of m-Wise, Inc., m-Wise Ltd. This subsidiary is responsible for developing most of the mobile financial applications for the parent corporation. Ben-Asulin served as Director of this company until he and one of his partners were forced to resign on February 1, 2011. The resignation, along with a $400,000 fine, was part of a deal made with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that allowed him to avoid prosecution for insider trading.
Ben-Asulin’s relationship with anyoption.com is ambiguous. The company is based in Cyprus and does not officially disclose its executive officers and partners. Additionally, no official listings from reliable third-parties list the company’s officers, partners, or history. According to Shay Ben-Asulin’s LinkedIn page, he is a partner at anyoption.com.
