The Invesco team:
Invesco created their own #buysidebootcamp in Henley, UK on the 15th November to support Mind Mental Health, Cancer Research UK and Children of the Ukraine. This follows on from the successful #buysidebootcamp we held this July at Barry's Bootcamp in London.The team led by Paul Squires consisted of the following traders: Adrian Bradshaw, Gordon Wood, Rob Tuffee, Albert Karavis, Kevin White, Simon Ferguson as well as Phoebe, Systematic Trading Analyst and Victor Meyer, Trading Legal.
But why did we host #buysidebootcamp?
During the course of 2019 and 2020 we became aware, in confidence, of members of our community who were sadly suffering with mental health conditions and diagnosed with Cancer. I had big plans to launch our #buysidebootcamp in early 2020 to raise lots of money for Mind mental health and Cancer Research UK as I wanted to help and do something to raise much needed funds for our peers and colleagues. However, Covid19 scuppered our plans :(. As a qualified level two exercise to music professional and understanding how important physical health is for mental health and wellbeing plus I'm never one to give up easily! this bootcamp this #buysidebootcamp will now take place on Wednesday 6th July at 2pm.
We will also be raising money for Unicef to help raise much needed funds for the children and their families in the Ukraine.
