Paris, 27th November 2020,
This US Thanksgiving, Thursday 26th November, Kepler Cheuvreux held its 1st Kepler Cheuvreux Charity Trading Day. Thanks to the mobilisation of our Equity Brokerage employees and clients, we have raised €392,892 of donations1. Money raised from the Charity Trading Day will be donated to charities which run food banks, thereby helping people who are economically and socially impacted by the coronavirus crisis: Belgische Federatie van Voedselbanken, City Harvest, Cruz Roja Española, Frankfurter Tafel, Opera San Francesco per i Poveri, Les Restos du Cœur, Secours populaire français and Vereniging van Nederlandse Voedselbanken.
“The Kepler Cheuvreux Charity Trading Day is a very important event for the group. It allows us to mobilise our employees and customers to unite around the same goal: to help and give support to those in need.” Laurent Quirin, Chairman of the Supervisory Board
Kepler Cheuvreux has been highly sensitive to the social and health impacts of the coronavirus crisis in the 12 countries where it operates, and has put a strong emphasis on the protection of its employees and clients since the very beginning of the crisis. Aware of its social responsibility, the group has created the Kepler Cheuvreux Foundation to go a step further by contributing substantially and concretely to the common good. This initiative involves its employees, clients and partners, initially in the context of the coronavirus crisis, and will be expanded to other areas in line with the Foundation’s charter over the coming years. Since its inception, in June 2020, the Foundation has been dedicated to raising money for hospitals, medical research and charitable organisations which support the victims of the economic & social consequences of the coronavirus crisis.
