Each year, FIA hosts the IDX Gala in aide of Futures for Kids, an organization that raises funds on behalf of the futures, options and cleared derivatives industry for charities that strive to provide better lives and futures for children internationally. Over the last eleven years, the IDX Gala has raised nearly £1.6 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) have accepted the sporran and the challenge to beat the previous year’s Kilt Challenge fundraising record. In 2018, GH Financials’ Mark Ibbotson to donned the kilt and raised more than £10,000 for Futures for Kids.
This year, FIA’s very own Chief Commercial Officer and Futures for Kids Chair, Emma Davey, is taking on the challenge and adding her own special tartan twist. While she is still “mad for plaid,” Emma is kicking the kilt aside in favor for something a bit more en vogue. What will it be? Attend the IDX Gala and see!
