ATFX conducts charity visit to orphanage, delivering love to those in need

Corporate Social Responsibility is an important facet of a vast global industry such as the FX business. This week, ATFX, along with some IBs and partners, provided fully sponsored entertainment and lunch to 50 children in need

Innovation and technological advancement is one of the key tenets of the electronic trading industry, with the leaders of the global FX business often committing their efforts toward continually moving the financial environment forward, be it via improved trade execution, greater access to analytical tools or infrastructural development that has brought an institutional grade experience into the living rooms of retail traders.

With such an avantgarde approach to business, another important matter is now being addressed, that being sustainability.

Ensuring a sustainable world is a major focus among all large business and international governments, and to this effect, the FX industry now looks to reinvest in society.

Also known as corporate responsibility, corporate citizenship or responsible or sustainable business, Corporate Social Responsibility requires that an organization assesses its stakeholders, such as its employees, customers, suppliers, communities and environment and evaluates its responsibilities to them. Good CSR strategies then focus on creating policies that benefit society in a variety of ways, with the organisation’s individual circumstances in mind.

One example of leadership in this direction is ATFX, which is committing resources toward building a sustainable and loving community, for making the world and the regions it serves a better place.

On the one hand, ATFX assumes its share of corporate social responsibility by actively reaching out to communities and serving their need, especially children and the elderly, whilst at the same time rendering support to the sustainability of the community by encouraging talent development to cultivate and innovate.

In the first week of 2020, ATFX’s team of volunteers and IBs have organised a charity visit to offer gifts to children in need and sharing their love with the children in the House of Joy, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, during the new year. ATFX sponsored a delicious lunch and gifts, as well as a magic show drawing game together with 50 children.

Malaysia is the third location of ATFX for expansion in South East Asia.

ATFX states that the company is particularly concerned about people who need help, especially children, resulting in ongoing cooperation with the region’s welfare organizations.

Mr. Keith Lee, General Manager of ATFX Malaysia, led this particular event, with the volunteer team of ATFX in Malaysia consisting of staff, IBs and their families of ATFX.

Keith said, “ATFX excel ourselves by being at the cutting edge of everything we do, on our services, products, as well as charity work. We organize this charity event together with our professional team and IBs, signifying our commitment to respond to community needs while continuing our commitment to CSR initiatives relating to education, and general social welfare.”

We recognise that we have an influential role to play in promoting a sense of moral duty to our employees, partners and communities. And with concerted efforts, we believe that we can make positive changes to the world in an impactful way.

In the future, ATFX will not only provide financial education services, but also hopes to organize more charity events across Asia.
