Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners keep up their tradition of honouring the 658 employees who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, by enlisting celebrities to help raise money for the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund.
In an interview on the FOX Business Network’s Countdown to the Closing Bell, Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners’ CEO Howard Lutnick discussed the commitment the firm has made to the employees and their families.
'Charity Day is a way to really bring them [new employees] into the culture of the firm', he said. It becomes a unifying force. 'We fought back to try to make sure we take care of their families. We decided the best way to show someone who died you love them is to take care of their family and show them love'.
Since its inception, the Relief Fund has distributed over $280 million. This year, Lutnick said the company is looking to raise at least $12m.
