Macro Risk Advisors (MRA) raised USD332,000 during the firm's fourth annual charitable trading day on 29 October, with the firm donating all of the net commissions earned from option, stock and ETF trades to charity.
The four organisations to benefit from MRA’s fundraising efforts are: Blythedale Children’s Hospital; Project ABLE; One Love Foundation; and the Navy SEAL Foundation will each receive USD83,000.
Representatives from the charities joined the MRA team for the opening bell to watch the stock and option execution process in real time. The event started off with great excitement, and momentum continued throughout the day until the closing bell, with 58 clients participating.
MRA CEO Dean Curnutt says: “Our team is striving to ‘Be Kind, Build Trust and Raise the Bar.’ These core values define our mission, not just on the strategy and execution front, but also the way in which we aspire to interact with clients and the world around us. Giving back is a fundamental part of MRA’s core values.”
