Industry shows its heart
Dealing for Donation Day, spearheaded by Mako Group,
raised $192,000 for the charity Children in Crisis (CiC) on 18
September. In addition to its own support - with many of Mako's
brokers having opted to waive their fees for the day in favour
of CiC, Mako also lobbied banks, brokers, exchanges and other
financial institutions to donate either a percentage of the
day's dealing profit or a lump sum to CiC. Among the companies
answering the call were: Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago
Mercantile Exchange, Eurex, Fimat, FOW, Alexander Forbes,
Fortis Clearing International, Funds@Work, JP Morgan, KBC
Financial Products, Link, New York Mercantile Exchange
Charitable Foundation, Stoxx and Vanbrugh Financial
Communications. At the close of trading on the day, Rob Heck, a
Stoxx market maker with Mako, was presented with a pair of
boxing gloves signed by former British boxer Sir Henry Cooper
for raising the most funds for CiC throughout the day.
