Do not invest more money than you can afford to lose.
The Cyprus-regulated binary options broker AnyOption announced it is donating $20 000 to UNICEF, as a part of its social responsibility program. The aim of the donation is to help disadvantage children reach their potential and achieve success.
According to the company, by launching a fundraising drive, it will extend its financial success and that of its clients to include people with little means of support and little hope of success. The next step of AnyOption’s social responsibility program will be to devise a plan that will rapidly mobilize awareness and fundraising efforts in emergency humanitarian and disaster-relief situations.
“We aim to develop a plan that will rapidly mobilize awareness and raising funds for UNICEF in humanitarian aid situations of emergency and disaster relief,” said Shy Datica CEO of AnyOption. “In fact, our contribution to UNICEF helps children through their various activities and we are delighted that this strengthens our humanitarian mission.”
AnyOption is a binary options trading platform launched in 2008 and regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC). It offers trading in currencies, indices, commodities and stocks. In March it was fined EUR 235 000 by the CySEC for non-compliance.
Considering the bad rap binary options brokers have been getting lately and the increasing efforts of various national regulators to curb their activities by all means, perhaps AnyOption’s UNICEF initiative is a step in the right direction and charity could be a means to clear the tarnished image of the industry.
