Want to make a lasting, positive impact on students and help young women get into the financial industry? Here’s your chance!
Next week, on Wednesday, September 24th, traders will come together with college students to donate proceeds from institutional equity trades conducted through BMO Capital Markets to help fund scholarships for promising young women.
Kamellia Saroop, now an equity research associate at BMO Capital Markets in the health care space, is among the FWA scholars who benefited from the “Equity through Education Day.” Kamellia says the FWA-BMO program “gave her access to funds and helped her learn more about the industry.”
To date, the Financial Women’s Association (FWA) has received $1.85 million from trading commissions generated on BMO Capital Markets’ annual “Equity through Education Day.” The funds have been used to provide assistance to young women entering the industry.
Since its inception in 2005, Equity through Education has donated $12.8 million earned across North America to non-profit organizations. Other organizations that benefit from this day include the Jackie Robinson Foundation, KIPP, and Lime Connect. To learn more about the trading day at BMO, go here.
