How we’re doing our bit to give back
Our commitment to making a positive impact in our local and international communities carries through our policies and daily practices.
This commitment doesn’t just impact the markets and services we build – it’s also central to why many of us enjoy coming to work every day.
Green initiatives, energy-efficiency awareness and minimizing waste – these are just some of ways we work to keep the earth in mind every day at work.
We proudly donate to a number of charities. Currently, we are working closely with the Children’s Tumour Foundation (CTF), and are committed to helping in its cause to conquer Neurofibromatosis (NF).
We’re constantly evolving our technology and making financial markets more liquid, functional and fair, for all participants.
Our health and wellbeing initiatives are designed to help our people thrive and be their best selves at work – including mental health awareness, flexible working, breakout relaxing spaces and more.
