Boxers Like to Trade
A unique project aimed at supporting boxers with financial advice and employment opportunities is proving to be a big hit in Manchester.
Maverick Stars Trust has teamed up with FCI Markets – a leading financial services provider – to deliver a 12-session course at Collyhurst and Moston ABC. The programme teaches fighters of all abilities about finance and trading. The company has a wealth of experience in the sector and already works in football, advising young professionals.
FCI chief executive and founder Steve Tyjas said: “You have to have commitment and discipline to excel in any kind of sport and it’s the same with trading. You need to have that dedication."
The course guides participants through the practicalities of trading, step by step, starting with the basics and working up to analytics, charting and the daily movement of each price, currency and stock. Former IBF featherweight World champion Josh Warrington, an ambassador for FCI Markets, is a big supporter of the initiative.
