LMAX Group Corporate Social Responsibility
As a London headquartered business with offices and customers around the world we feel an obligation to help address issues that our world is faced with which we reflect in our CRS strategy. Our roots remain in W11, in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea in London.
Our CSR strategy is a vital element of our transformative business strategy and our ambition is to drive positive change, not just in the way people trade foreign exchange, but also in the world around us and particularly in our local community.
On a global level we’re particularly supportive of initiatives which:
- Increase diversity
- Create more accessible opportunities
- Children’s causes
- Technology-enabled initiatives as they align with the core of our business and success
On a local level we’re passionate about initiatives that:
- Support anyone underprivileged, vulnerable or with mental health issues
- Help the local foodbank provide food to the local community
- Youth work/causes with the aim to give more access to opportunities for young people
Our COVID-19 response in April 2020
LMAX Group is proud to be supporting the K+C Foundation’s (KCF) Covid-19 appeal which brings desperately
needed funding and resources to local initiatives that are tackling the most urgent needs as a direct result
of this crisis. We have been based in W11 in the Borough of Kensington & Chelsea for over 10 years and feel
it is our responsibility to not only look after our employees but also to help the underprivileged and
vulnerable within our local community where possible. We would encourage other local businesses, that have
the means, to support this important cause in any way they can. The KCF is the right local partner who care
as much about making a difference as we do and we’re looking to build a long-term partnership with the KCF
and will be supporting them in the medium term with youth work and other local initiatives.
