On March 22nd, Liquidity Finance held its 9th Annual Trading Day in support of EMpower. Liquidity staff donated 100% of revenues generated on the day to EMpower causes and raised $67,000, marking $1 million in total contributions over the past 9 years.
EMpower is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide disadvantaged young people in emerging markets with the resources, skills, mentorship and opportunities to improve their lives and in turn help better their families, communities and the world around them. Founded in 2000 by financial professionals from the EM community who wanted to give back to the countries where they did business, EMpower makes strategic investments in locally-led organizations and partners with them to improve the lives of at-risk young people.
Faisal Mian, co-founder of Liquidity, commented, “We would like to thank our valuable clients for working with Liquidity Finance to support those less fortunate than ourselves. I would also like to commend our staff who give up their compensation one day each year for a very noble cause. It sends a great message to our industry on behalf of the wonderful people working at Liquidity to come together to help those who need it – it makes me very proud”.
