- Equity trading fess from today across the Group to be donated to charity
Borsa Italiana and London Stock Exchange Group launch their Charity Trading Day for the third consecutive year.
London Stock Exchange Group will donate a day’s worth of equity trading fees from London Stock Exchange and Borsa Italiana to charity.
The money raised will be distributed through London Stock Exchange Group Foundation. It was set up in 2010 to fund significant endeavours and to make investments in the communities in which it operates across the Group in the UK, Italy and Sri Lanka.
To celebrate the occasion Borsa Italiana will host a conference on, 'Children's Rights and Business in Italy', based on a UNICEF and KPMG research report. It is the first Italian report aimed at understanding Italian companies’ positioning towards children's rights and hopes to engage and raise awareness of this topic in the financial community.
London Stock Exchange group supports numerous charitable projects. The last project, the second-hand clothing store with a social cause, Share, opened in Milan in March. Share is supported by Coperativa Vesti Solidale and London Stock Exchange Group Foundation through the matching funds programme, the "IPO Solidale" organized in collaboration with Fondazione Cariplo.
Marina Famiglietti, Head of Human Resources,Borsa Italiana and London Stock Exchange Group Foundation member said :
"We are delighted that the Charity Trading Day is becoming an annual event for the financial community. Last year we raised £533,000 and we are confident in exceeding that this year.
