Eyal was the founder of Platinum Funding Group (1992-2009), a premier factoring company that funded $250M annually at its peak.

Everyone asks us “but, WHY BANANA?” Here is why.
When Eyal was 8 years old, he moved to Ethiopia with his family for 4 years. His mother, a Mossad agent, and his father, a military man, were sent by the Israeli government to serve there.
To make Eyal happy, his parents adopted him a monkey whom he named JoJo. To remember the past Eyal, chose the name Banana. Also, why not make finance a little more fun?
Eyal is Caesar’s new guardian! Caesar is a 4-year-old chimpanzee orphan rescued by the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Sierra Leone.
