ICAP to Hold 20th Annual Global Charity Day on Wednesday, December 5
ICAP, the world's leading interdealer broker and provider of post trade risk and information services, will hold its 20th annual global Charity Day on Wednesday, December 5, 2012. On this day, 100% of ICAP's revenues and commissions will be donated to more than 200 charities worldwide.
Since the first Charity Day in 1993, ICAP has raised $158 million for more than 1,000 well-deserving charities worldwide. This year over 30 charities in the U.S. will benefit, including New Eyes for the Needy, Only Make Believe, and Children's Defense Fund. A full list of the U.S. charities is listed below.
As part of the day's activities, ICAP invites the charities' celebrity patrons to join the Company in 63 offices worldwide to speak to ICAP's customers and help boost trading volumes for the day. The list of celebrities attending will be announced on the day, and in the U.S. includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Liv Tyler, Deron Williams, Mark Teixeira, and Joba Chamberlain, among others. Daniel Craig, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Lewis Hamilton, Bill Clinton and Elton John have been just a few of those who have lent their support to ICAP in previous years.
Michael Spencer, Group Chief Executive Officer, ICAP said: “We recognise how hard it is for charities to raise funds during these difficult times, so this year ICAP's Charity Day is more important than ever. This is the Company's 20th Charity Day and we're extremely proud of what has been achieved since 1993, thanks to the continued support and commitment of our customers, suppliers and employees. Together we all give 100%.”
