Vantage matches all client donations to UNHCR for a month

Rick Steves

Vantage has announced a month-long donation drive in support of UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to help refugees and internally displaced persons worldwide.

The international multi-asset broker will be matching all donations from both new and existing clients, dollar for dollar, to support humanitarian efforts undertaken by UNHCR.

The donation drive will run for one month until 30 August and may be extended based on client feedback.

Food insecurity, climate, Ukraine, Africa, and Afghanistan

Sofiia Starchevska, ESG Ambassador at Vantage, added: “It’s infinitely more empowering and motivating knowing that your actions are one of many. It’s easier to see the power of collective, as opposed to individual, action, and this is what we want to achieve with this fundraising activity.”

“At Vantage, we know that the mental, emotional, and physical trauma of being displaced and having to rebuild in a strange land is a massive challenge, and we hope our initiative will double our support for refugees to seek protection and enable them to rebuild their lives. Together with UNHCR, we hope to make care our shared currency.”

Ann Moey, Partnerships Manager at UNHCR, commented: “International solidarity is needed now more than ever, and all sectors of society can do their bit to help. Support from private sector partners like Vantage helps us inject vital energy into our humanitarian efforts, and allows us to deliver more assistance to vulnerable, displaced communities worldwide.”

The UNHCR is dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights, and building a better future for refugees. The number of people forced to flee conflict, violence, human rights violations, and persecution has now crossed the 100 million mark for the first time on record, according to UNHCR data.

The donations are expected to be used to help refugees fleeing from food insecurity, the climate emergency, the Ukraine invasion, as well as other crises in Africa and Afghanistan.

Vantage in ESG drive

Vantage is accelerating its corporate ESG journey. The broker had recently announced its ESG programme, which formalizes its employees’ ongoing efforts as they’ve been implementing localized ESG projects for their local community for years, from volunteer work and donations to fundraising and education.

Earlier this month, Vantage announced the programme would include a worldwide blood donation drive, fundraising for refugees, and supporting free financial education initiatives in emerging markets to improve financial literacy and boost financial independence.

The donation drive followed closely after Vantage’s partnership with Supercar Blondie in participating in the Blue Carbon ESG initiative in Sardinia, Italy, as well as its multi-year sponsorship of the McLaren MX Extreme E team.

Vantage offers multi-asset brokerage services covering a whole range of CFDs on Forex, Commodities, Indices, and Shares.
