Brian Daly, managing director at Morgan Stanley, will take part in a cross-Channel swim to raise money for Futures For Kids, a fundraising charity set up by members of the futures industry.
Daly, a board member of the Futures and Options
Association, will swim in a team of four, which includes
two Royal Marines.
The team will take turns to swim and each individual will swim
for an hour before swapping to the next member. The swim is
expected to last between 12 and 15 hours.
Asked what time the team hoped to cross in, Daly told FOi: "It
all depends on the day. If it’s choppy, it could
be as much as 16 hours. It would be a great run if we did it in
Swimmers are only allowed to wear swimming trunks, a cap and
goggles. They will cover themselves in goose fat grease.
"It’s a great opportunity to raise money for
Futures for Kids, and to give something back," Daly
