SEPTEMBER 11, 2019

2019 CHARITY DAY IN NEW YORK

GFI Group and our Cantor Fitzgerald affiliates commemorate the 658 Cantor Fitzgerald and 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished in the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks by donating 100% of our global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world.

Charity Day, originally conceived as a way to raise money for the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund to assist the families of Cantor employees who lost their lives on 9/11, has expanded to embrace charitable causes around the world. To date, Charity Day has raised $159 million.

On Charity Day, participating charities bring celebrity “ambassadors” who join us on our trading floor to conduct trades over the phone with clients. Many distinguished guests have lent their support by joining us on this day, including prominent actors, musicians, sports icons, models, media personalities, royalty and politicians.

2019 CHARITY DAY IN LONDON

Since 2004, Charity Day has supported hundreds of charities and we are proud to have raised almost $159 million globally. Our Charity Day each year is a much anticipated event for all employees and partners of GFI Group. We again hope to build on the success of previous years and continue to make a real difference to many people’s lives on a day that pays respect to those we have lost.
