GMP Securities to Donate 100% of Trading Commissions joined by Grit Capital, Einstein Exchange and Vanbex Ventures who will donate Cryptocurrencies in Support of Covenant House Toronto

GMP Capital Inc. (GMP) (TSX: GMP), a leading Canadian diversified financial services firm, announced today that its subsidiary GMP Securities L.P., in partnership with Grit Capital, Einstein Exchange and Vanbex Ventures, will host a charity trading day on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, in support of Covenant House Toronto’s anti-sex trafficking campaign.

GMP Capital Inc. is also proud to renew its title sponsorship for the second annual ‘Grand Commission’ being held the evening of June 6, 2018 at the Ritz Carlton Toronto. The GMP Capital Grand Commission is a multi-dimensional fundraiser that merges pledge-driven corporate giving with a black-tie affair. Employing innovative strategies to accelerate fundraising initiatives, the Grand Commission identifies the most vulnerable areas of Toronto – with proceeds from the 2018 gala in support of Covenant House.

The first of its kind in Canada, this year’s charity trading day combines traditional equity trading with the dynamic world of cryptocurrency trading. On June 6, 2018, GMP Securities L.P. will donate 100% of all agency trading commission dollars from institutional equity trades generated. Joining GMP that day will be Einstein Exchange, Vanbex Ventures and Grit Capital who will donate cryptocurrency trading commissions.

Celebrities such as Canadian NHL players Barclay Goodrow of the San Jose Sharks and Ryan Murphy of the Minnesota Wild, together with Todd Shapiro of SiriusXM will join the GMP trading desk on the morning of June 6, 2018 to be part of the benevolent movement.

“We are very grateful to our clients and employees for generously partnering with us to make this year’s charity trading day part of the solution to this serious problem,” said Harris Fricker, President and Chief Executive Officer, GMP.

“We pride ourselves on bringing innovative strategies to charitable giving and corporate responsibility. We are pleased and honored to renew our collaboration with GMP Securities and to partner with one of Canada’s fastest growing crypotocurrencies exchanges, Einstein Exchange, and one of Canada’s most successful blockchain advisory firms Vanbex. To host what we believe to be the first charity cryptocurrency trading day in history,” said Genevieve Roch-Decter, Chief Executive Officer, Grit Capital and Vice-Chair of the Grand Commission.

The Grand Commission would also like to thank MODUS Ristorante and Bardi’s Steak House for sponsoring the kickoff trading desk event and trading desk luncheon.

Deemed the Charitable Event of the Season, the Grand Commission is an extraordinary commemoration of generosity in the community. For additional detail, including sponsorship information and how to purchase tickets, please visit our website at
