Trading Charity brings in 135,000 Euros for two Frankfurt organisations
Deutsche Börse and specialists donate their Saint Nicholas Day exchange fees to "Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V." (children's cancer society) and "Frankfurter Förderverein zur Bekämpfung von Tumorerkrankungen (FFBT)" (tumour patient support society)
The amounts raised for the two charities were raised through donations of transaction and trading fees via Börse Frankfurt's "Handeln und Helfen" event on Saint Nicholas Day. Investors who traded equities, bonds, funds, ETFs or exchange traded products on this day automatically helped both causes.
The trading floor specialists opted to donate their trading fees to the "Frankfurter Förderverein zur Bekämpfung von Tumorerkrankungen", which aids treatment and support of the region's cancer patients. Deutsche Börse decided to donate to "Hilfe für 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.
