Citi’s fourth annual ‘E for Education’ charity campaign has raised $4 million for education-focused charities.
The 10-week global charity campaign stretched across Citi’s offices in the United States, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America. All proceeds will be evenly divided amongst seven charities.
As was the case in previous years, Citi’s FX business donated $1 for every $1 million of FX transacted electronically.
The campaign featured a series of activities involving local schools including classroom teach-ins by staff, student CV clinics and trading floor visits.
Former England test cricketer Chris Broad and Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins will host a Celebrity Quiz Night at Minster Exchange in the City of London on January 18 2017 to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).

Bloomberg Tradebook raised over $1 million at its fifth annual Charity Day on Thursday.
The Charity Day originated in 2012, with the New York office of Bloomberg Tradebook donating the net commissions from its equities business on that day to five different charities.
It has now evolved to include London, Hong Kong and – in partnership with BM&F Bovespa – Sao Paulo and will see the net commissions across all of the asset classes that Bloomberg Tradebook services donated to 20 different charities.
With the latest Bank for International Settlements (BIS) survey showing the first contraction in the size of the FX market since 1998, some market participants have commented that this is further evidence that the banks – long the principal source of liquidity – have stepped back significantly from the market.
This has left a clear opening for alternative liquidity providers, some of whom have been very public about their ambitions in the FX market. Some of these alternative liquidity providers have been quick to emphasise the fact that they do hold positions and take risk in the market, as opposed to just recycling liquidity or arbitraging between different areas of the market.
