ICAP’s Charity Day raises more than £100 million worldwide since 1993!
London, December 6, 2012 – ICAP (IAP.L), the world’s leading interdealer broker and provider of post trade risk and information services, has raised £11 million worldwide on its 20th annual Charity Day, held yesterday. This brings the total amount raised through ICAP Charity Day, which started in 1993, to more than £100 million.
Active Heroes was chosen as one of the charity recipients for the great event from the Louisville, KY branch. Across the world, many celebrities were involved by brokering deals on behalf of the charity. The total amount raised for Active Heroes will be announced later in 2013.
Michael Spencer, Group Chief Executive Officer of ICAP, said: “We’re enormously proud, especially in this difficult economic climate, to have been able to raise £11 million in this, our 20th ICAP Charity Day, reaching a total of more than £100 million. This momentous milestone would not have been possible without the incredible and ongoing support of our customers, employees and suppliers and has benefited hundreds of charities around the world.”
100% of ICAP’s revenues and 100% of its brokers’ commissions from the day go direct to charities. This year, ICAP is supporting 200 charities globally, having supported more than 1,200 charities since the first Charity Day in 1993.
