Marquee for e-Quality
NEW YORK, February 3, 2022 - Goldman Sachs has announced the launch of the ‘Marquee for e-Quality’ initiative for the second consecutive year, as part of the firm’s on-going commitment to promoting inclusion, diversity, and equity.
Throughout February and March, Goldman Sachs will be making a donation based on FX & Commodities volumes traded on Marquee Trader, the firm’s integrated platform for electronic execution, as well as FX volumes traded via Passive Currency Overlay.
Last year’s inaugural campaign, saw $1.1m raised, from over 56 different countries, supporting the vital work of leading organizations addressing racial injustice, structural inequity and economic disparity globally.
