Online trading major IG Group and Teach for Australia have announced a new partnership deal. This latest collaboration is part of the brokerage’s Brighter Future initiative.
TFA is an Australian-based not-for-profit organization that aims to address educational inequity in the country.
According to the announcement, IG Group will support different programs of TFA which are growing a community of leaders committed to equity for children, by recruiting, training, and empowering more people to take up teaching in the classrooms where they are needed most.
Commenting on the latest collaboration, Melodie Potts Rosevear, CEO of TFA, said:
“We are so grateful to come together with IG Group for this new partnership. Great teachers and school leaders make a vital difference in the lives of our young people and can help close the education disadvantage gap. We warmly welcome IG Group to our TFA community.”
IG Group Brighter future initiative
IG Group’s global Brighter Future initiative allocated a substantial amount for different ESG activities in 2020. “The Covid-19 global pandemic is having a devastating impact on a global scale. As so often is the case in times of crisis, it is the most vulnerable members of our communities that suffer disproportionately.
Driven by a strong desire to support our communities in their time of need, IG took swift action and committed £5 million from our profit before tax for the 2020 financial year to the IG Brighter Future Fund,” IG mentioned on the official page of Brighter Future initiative.
“IG’s Brighter Future initiative was created to further our commitment to our people, our customers and our communities. It seeks to empower members of our communities through equal access to education and social mobility,” Kevin Algeo, CEO of APAC at IG, said.
