Goldman Sachs to Run Second Marquee for e-Quality Campaign

Goldman Sachs has announced it is to run its ‘Marquee for e-Quality’ charity campaign for a second year.
Throughout February and March, the bank says it will be making a donation based on FX and commodities volumes traded on Marquee Trader, the single dealer platform, as well as FX volumes traded via Passive Currency Overlay.
Last year’s inaugural campaign raised $1.1m from over 56 different countries, and helped support the vital work of leading organisations addressing racial injustice, structural inequity and economic disparity globally.
“At Goldman Sachs, everything we do takes place through a lens of innovation,” says Asahi Pompey, global head of corporate engagement at Goldman. “The Marquee for e-Quality initiative epitomises this attitude – by combining commercial endeavours with our philanthropic strategy, we are able to leverage and scale our impact.”
The funds raised through Marquee for e-Quality will be donated to selected non-profits that are grantees of the Goldman Sachs Fund for Racial Equity, a fund launched in 2020 in support of non-profit organisations across four key themes: Advancing economic progress, legal and criminal justice reform, fuelling social change and fostering educational opportunities.
