Prince Harry Helps Close $1 Billion Trade Deal At 9/11 Charity Event

Prince Harry took to the trading floors on Sept. 11 to help raise money for 9/11 victims.

The Duke of Sussex headed down to London’s Canary Wharf for the 15th annual BCG Charity Day where he answered phones (sometimes three at a time) to help close deals, including a government bond that was worth more than $1 billion CAD.

For the past 15 years, BCG Partners has held a fundraiser on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to raise money for those affected by the tragedy.

Some of the funds also went towards Harry’s Invictus Games Foundation, which just celebrated the fifth anniversary of the games.

Shaun D. Lynn, president of BGC Partners, released a statement before the day started saying, “Sept. 11 remains a day very close to our hearts and I am incredibly proud to be hosting our 15th Charity Day. It turns such a historic anniversary into an uplifting day for all involved. We have now raised around $159 million globally, an outstanding achievement, which would not be possible without the incredible support of our clients, staff and the charities involved each year. I am looking foward to making this year’s Charity Day the best yet.”

And with the help of Prince Harry’s closing skills, this was definitely was the “best yet.”

Harry is celebrating his 35th birthday this weekend.
