The first BTIG Commissions for Children’s Charity Day was held in 2003 and raised funds for three charities. The BTIG Commissions for Charity Day is now a worldwide event, with all BTIG branches and affiliates participating.

“We are looking forward to celebrating a decade of charity day this year,” said Steven Starker, Co-Founder of BTIG. “The event brings together our employees and clients across the globe with a roster of celebrity traders who continue to support our involvement in these important charities.”
