We are thrilled to announce that OHF has been selected as a recipient charity of BTIG Charity 2015. BTIG, giving back is a part of us. It speaks to who we are as an organization and our corporate responsibility to those less fortunate. BTIG Charity Day is a global initiative that began in 2003. Over the last 12 years, our clients, celebrity partners and employees have been increasingly generous year after year and are committed to helping us raise funds for charities, many of them supporting children in need around the world. Since inception of the event, we’ve donated over US$30 million to hundreds of charities.
Each year, our celebrity partners join us to help fundraise, and act as ambassadors for their respective charities. Throughout the trading day, all-star athletes, top-recording artists, celebrities from film and television and cultural icons join our institutional traders to raise money for a variety of charities. With celebrities working as “guest traders”, clients have an opportunity to team up with some of their favorite stars to raise funds for meaningful causes.
BTIG pioneered our first Commissions for Charity Day in 2003, raising funds for three charities. Today, hundreds of charitable organizations are recipients of BTIG donations and many of the charities supported each year are nominated by clients.
This year, the 2015 BTIG Charity Day will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2015. We’re very proud of what we have accomplished together so far and look forward to what lies ahead.
