BMO Celebrates 17 Years of Promoting Diversity and Inclusion Through BMO Capital Markets' Equity Through Education Trading Day

BMO Capital Markets will hold its 17th annual Equity Through Education (ETE) Trading day program on September 22, 2021. Every year BMO donates 100 per cent of one day's institutional equity trading commissions in North America and Europe to charities that provide scholarships, bursaries, mentoring programs and development opportunities to underprivileged students.

"For 17 years BMO has partnered with charities to raise money through our Equity Through Education Trading day program, promoting diversity and inclusion through financial aid and development programs that help bright and deserving students achieve their potential," said Dan Barclay, CEO and Group Head, BMO Capital Markets. "We've been fortunate to hire a number of students who have benefited from these programs and we're excited about the contributions they will make to BMO."

ETE partners include The Jackie Robinson Foundation, Imperial College of London, Indspire, Lime Connect, the Loran Scholars Foundation, Say Yes to Education, the Women in Capital Markets Return to Bay Street Program and the Financial Women's Association which, through it's FWA/BMO Capital Markets Baruch Mentorship Program, has been mentoring and developing students for 20 years.

"Thank you, BMO Capital Markets! I look forward to joining the firm after two great summer internships. The BMO scholarship has helped my family a lot. And thanks to the FWA for its life-changing mentoring program," said Jenny He, graduate of the FWA/BMO Capital Markets Baruch Mentorship Program and recent BMO recruit.
