ICAP plc, a leading markets operator and provider of post trade risk mitigation and information services, announced today that it has raised $12.5 million worldwide on its 22nd annual global Charity Day, held yesterday.
This is equivalent to 3 percent of ICAP’s full year pre-tax profits.
Michael Spencer, Group Chief Executive Officer of ICAP, said: “We’re incredibly proud that together we have raised $12.5 million. This brings the total amount raised since 1993 to $189 million. This is a fantastic achievement which would not have been made possible without the ongoing support of our customers, employees, suppliers and our distinguished guests who have worked hard to make a tangible difference to hundreds of charities around the world.”
100% of ICAP’s revenues and 100% of its brokers’ commissions from the day go directly to charities. This year, ICAP is supporting 200 charities globally, having supported more than 1,600 charities since the first Charity Day in 1993.
