Headline: Trading charity on Saint Nicholas Day at Börse Frankfurt
30 November 2017. FRANKFURT (Deutsche BÃ¶rse). Deutsche BÃ¶rse and the specialists working on the Frankfurt trading floor will give the transaction and trading fees earned on the BÃ¶rse Frankfurt venue on Saint Nicholas Day (6 December) to two charities. The Trading Charity event is being organised by the exchange operator and the total of eleven trading firms to raise funds in support of two Frankfurt charities “Hilfe fÃ¼r krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V.” (children’s cancer society) and “Frankfurter FÃ¶rderverein zur BekÃ¤mpfung von Tumorerkrankungen (FFBT) e.V.” (tumour patient support society).
Investors trading equities, bonds, funds, ETFs and further exchange traded products on BÃ¶rse Frankfurt on this day will automatically be helping both organisations. The specialists are donating their trading fees to the “Frankfurter FÃ¶rderverein zur BekÃ¤mpfung von Tumorerkrankungen (FFBT) e. V.”, which provides aids for treatments and support of the region’s cancer patients. Deutsche BÃ¶rse will donate its trading proceeds to the “Hilfe fÃ¼r krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V.”, which works to improve the conditions of young patients and their families in inpatient and outpatient areas of the children’s cancer clinic in Frankfurt.
Hauke Stars, Deutsche BÃ¶rse Executive Board member, commented, “We are pleased to join forces with the specialists to support two Frankfurt organisations that provide aid to people in very distressing situations in life and offer them day-to-day support. At the same time, we would like to recognise the work of the many volunteers with our donation – neither organisation would be able to fulfil its mission without them.”
The funds raised will be presented to the two charities at 9.00 a.m. 15 December on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange trading floor.
