Wherever possible ICM look to use our position of privilege to help others and make a positive difference to the world around us. From supporting projects we are passionate about, to using our voice to shine a spotlight on issues that deserve more attention, we believe there is always important social work to be that needs to be achieved.
We are incredibly proud of what ICM Cares has achieved so far and thank all our clients, partners and staff for their continued support. It’s one of the reasons why we believe that by working together we can turn challenges into opportunities, allowing us to always push boundaries to make business and the world a better place to live and work in.
December 13, 2022: With the start of the winter season, ICM contributed to UK-based non-profit organisation Sands End Associated Projects in Action (SEAPIA) by providing warm meal provisions for 70 children aged 4-13 years over a period of 3 weeks.
Sands End Adventure Playground (SEAPIA) was founded in 1970 in London by local residents who recognised the importance of having a place for children to play. Within the last half a decade, SEAPIA has been providing play-childcare provisions for children by engaging them in multiple activities in a stimulating positive environment.
“At ICM, we believe that the measure of a successful business goes beyond the profit that it makes. We see corporate responsibility as self-regulation with the aim of social accountability and making a positive impact on society. Continuously growing as a financial firm, we have big goals for the next year, that will hopefully make a positive impact on lives of the youth who are responsible for shaping the future.” commented Shoaib Abedi, Founder, and CEO of icmasia.net
September 7, 2020: ICM partnered with Sands End Associated Projects in Action (SEAPIA) as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) outreach program. In collaboration with ICM, SEAPIA organised a fun-filled activity catered towards children aged 4-13 years. With ICM’s generous contribution of craft supplies and other creative products, SEAPIA provided a motivational and positive reinforcing environment for kids to express themselves freely.
Julie Cavanagh, Manager at Sands End Adventure Playground, further affirms: “The generous donation from ICM provided arts and crafts for the 6-week summer programme. We were also able to provide art and crafts packages for local children that could not attend the centre this year. Although we had to limit our numbers due to Covid-19, ICM’s generous donation has made a big difference to over 40 children and their families."
Dubai, June 2017: For many people living in the UAE, Ramadan is not a festive experience due to lack of money and access to basic provisions. In 2017 we decided to brighten up the lives of local families by providing food, along with a touch of warmth for the lives of those less fortunate, which is truly in keeping with the spirit of Ramadan and Islamic teachings. In life it is quite often the smallest things that can have the biggest impact, and our gifts ensured recipients were able to have a happy and meaningful festive experience.
Helping clients transform the way they trade is one of the core values of our company. By encouraging sustainable trading we ensure our clients, partners and local communities benefit from our industry knowledge and expertise. At ICM we recognise our privileged position and continually work to set the right example to others in the world of trading.
One of the ways we are able to do this is by offering our experience and insight to others. In May 2017 we spent some time with the finance and investment students at ‘Rochester Institute of Technology’ (RIT), Dubai, covering everything from the basics of trading, to technical and fundamental analysis.
We believe that educating the next generation will help build a pathway towards a better and brighter future for all. As we learn as a company we want to help others grow with us, passing on knowledge to empower and develop their opportunities in life.
China, January 2016 : As a member of the FX Charity Foundation, ICM participated in Xiangxi Aide et Action in 2016, an initiative that provides support in education and early childhood care programmes.
It tied in closely with our belief that investing in the next generation will help create a more resourceful nation and prosperous future for both the individual and the country as a whole.
While we acknowledge that education is not the only factor that will determine a person’s success in later life, we do recognise the crucial role it plays in empowering and broadening their horizons and the career options made available to them.
