On International Women’s Day eve, Shanti Pereira, a celebrated Team Singapore sprinter, teamed up with CMC Invest as their new ambassador. Her mission is to enlighten young women on the power of investing and financial wisdom from an early age.

“Investing, much like racing, is all about commitment, patience, and looking at the big picture,” Pereira remarked. She emphasized that just as steady practice boosts track performance, regular investing fosters financial prosperity. Shanti Pereira, a star in the Singapore team, clinched double Gold in both the 100m and 200m races at the 2023 Asian Championships. She made history by winning the 200m at the Asian Games, marking Singapore’s first athletics gold since 1974 in these games. Beyond her athletic prowess, Pereira is an influencer with over 19,100 Instagram followers.

Expanding Horizons of CMC

CMC Invest, a branch of the larger CMC Group known for its CFD trading, first opened its doors in the UK in October 2022 and made its way to Singapore in September last year. The platform now facilitates stock trading in 15 markets worldwide, including Singapore and the US, offering specific commission-free trades dependent on the account and market.

Plans are underway for the Singapore arm of CMC Invest to introduce wealth management and over-the-counter options, striving to evolve into a comprehensive ‘super app’. “Shanti Pereira reflects the resilience, determination, and excellence CMC Invest stands for,” said Christopher Forbes, Head of CMC Invest Singapore. He expressed excitement over her dual role as a client and ambassador, particularly her drive for women’s empowerment.

CMC’s strategy includes localized sports collaborations, with Pereira being a recent addition. The brand is already associated with sports teams in New Zealand and Australia. In the preceding month, CMC Markets, headquartered in London, declared a 17% workforce reduction, eliminating around 200 jobs as part of their cost-cutting and efficiency improvement strategy.
