Each year, FIA hosts the IDX Gala in aid of Futures for Kids, an organization that raises funds on behalf of the futures and options industry for charities that strive to provide better lives and futures for children internationally. Over the last nine years, the IDX Gala has raised more than £1.2 million for Futures for Kids, including through the Kilt Challenge.
Since 2010, various giants from the futures industry (to wit – John Lothian and Bill Herder and five others) have accepted the sporran and the challenge to beat the previous year’s Kilt Challenge fundraising record, collectively raising more than £30,000 to support this worthy cause. Last year, FIA’s Head of Asia-Pacific, Bill Herder raised more than £8,000 at the 2016 IDX Gala. But now, it’s time for the first woman to don the sporran - and raise the bar. We are pleased to announce that Kim Taylor, President of Clearing and Post-Trade Services at the CME Group, for the 2017 IDX Gala.
Kim is ready to move beyond her annual Toblerone bid at IDX to prove the old adage – the bigger they are, the harder they fall. So gents – and ladies – let’s support Kim as she fearlessly dons a kilt and works her way to beat Bill’s fundraising tally and raise £10,000.
