“We would also like to take this opportunity to join NEOM McLaren Extreme E in celebrating the addition of Cristina Gutiérrez and Mattias Ekström to the team – both talented drivers who will most certainly bring their A game to the race this season.”

Vantage Markets has announced its multi-year sports sponsorship deal with the NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team will continue for the third year in a row.

The collaboration has been notable for its dynamic approach, transcending traditional partnership models.

A key achievement of this partnership was the establishment of the Vantage Foundation, which was launched at the McLaren Technology Centre and funded through the auction of used car bodywork and driver overalls donated by the NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team.

Electric SUVs racing in remote and extreme environments

The partnership is celebrated for aligning with the goals of Extreme E, an off-road racing series designed to highlight environmental issues and promote sustainability. The series is unique for featuring electric SUVs racing in remote and extreme environments, with teams composed of both male and female drivers.

The addition of Cristina Gutiérrez and Mattias Ekström to the team has been highlighted as a significant move, expected to bring competitive excellence to the races.

This partnership between Vantage Markets and the NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team reflects a mutual dedication to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in their respective fields, with a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation. Vantage Markets offers trading in Contracts for Difference (CFDs) across various asset classes, including Forex, Commodities, Indices, Shares, ETFs, and Bonds.

David Shayer, CEO at Vantage UK, said: “Our continued collaboration with the NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team underscores our shared commitment towards innovation, excellence, and leaving a positive mark in our respective fields. We would also like to take this opportunity to join NEOM McLaren Extreme E in celebrating the addition of Cristina Gutiérrez and Mattias Ekström to the team – both talented drivers who will most certainly bring their A game to the race this season.”

Supercar Blondie is a Vantage brand ambassador

Last year, Vantage announced Alexandra Mary Hirschi, also known as Supercar Blondie, as Brand Ambassador of the multi-asset broker.

Vantage and Supercar Blondie’s online presence will push accessible and relevant financial education to many who previously wouldn’t have been able to receive it, the online broker stated.

The social media publisher draws over 1 billion views per month across the group, with over 85 million followers globally.

The collaboration is also an opportunity for Vantage to commit to female empowerment, as well as a shared desire for innovation and better climate action, Vantage added. Racing is a traditionally masculine industry, but Supercar Blondie has become a leading voice and influence that aligns with Vantage’s partnership with NEOM McLaren Extreme E, in an effort towards climate action.
