Jefferies to Hold Global Coronavirus Relief Charity Day Dedicated to the Memory of Peg Broadbent on May 27th
Jefferies confirmed today that it will hold a Global Coronavirus Relief Charity Day tomorrow, Wednesday, May 27, 2020. The firm and its staff will contribute to global charities and relief efforts to assist those suffering from the devastation caused by the Coronavirus global pandemic and will offer investors around the world the opportunity to join these efforts by trading with Jefferies. Jefferies will dedicate this entire effort to their late CFO Peg Broadbent, who was a victim of this terrible disease.
As previously announced, Jefferies will donate net commissions from trading on May 27 for all global trading in equities, fixed income and foreign exchange by the firm’s clients. In addition, Jefferies as a firm will donate $1 million directly, and all 3,822 employees worldwide will be given the opportunity to donate to these efforts. These contributions will be allocated to a series of charities on the front lines in fighting this ongoing global pandemic and providing urgently needed relief for those affected. For our friends and partners who would like to join us in donating to support this effort and honor Peg, please contact Richard Khaleel (number and email below) and we will coordinate your donation to be sure it gets properly credited in your name to one of our chosen charities.
Rich Handler, CEO, and Brian Friedman, President, of Jefferies commented: "All of us at Jefferies have been personally and deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and long-time colleague, Peg Broadbent, to the Coronavirus and we are very concerned about the terrible loss of life and global impact of this pandemic. We dedicate this Global Charity Day in honor of Peg and encourage Jefferies’ global employees and clients to join our efforts to help those in need.”
