Global Capital Derivatives Awards 2019
SG CIB is pleased to announce that it has won the Industry Initiative of the Year for its Hedge To Pledge product at the Global Capital Derivatives Awards 2019.
This accolade is not awarded every year, only when Global Capital identifies a worthwhile initiative. In this case, Societe Generale is recognized for its innovation, financial engineering capabilities and positive impact on society through the hardwiring of philanthropy into FX trading.
Hedge to Pledge is based on a simple concept: rounding up foreign exchange transactions to donate to a good cause. To develop this charitable initiative, Societe Generale partnered with Epic Foundation. Clients can select one of 28 NGOs and social enterprises, all members of Epic Foundation’s network, based in 11 countries to donate.
