Market Matters In The Community
My team and I manage the investment portfolio of the Apex Foundation, and we support the foundation in several ways.
First and foremost by generating strong investment returns that underpin the foundations’ ability to distribute to the many worthwhile Apex trusts around the country, trusts that support practical and worthwhile initiatives ranging from assisting disadvantaged children to important Melanoma Research, and plenty in between.
Each year we also participate in fundraising activities and this year I’m heading back to the Flinders ranges on a Honda CT110 postie bike to tackle some of the toughest and most challenging off-road terrain Australia has to offer.
Along with 80+ other riders, we’ll travel 1,000 km in 4 days to raise funds for the Apex Copper Coast Retreats, which is the latest addition to the Apex Underprivileged Children’s Trust. The purpose of raising funds is to improve the quality of life of Australians who have special needs. The physical, emotional, and financial burden of cancer can be overwhelming and by participating in this ride, and with the generous support of donors, we hope to lessen this burden.
The Shaw & Partners Foundation, which has donated over $8m since 2015, has supported the effort with a fantastic contribution of $7,500.
In 2023, we raised a total of $41,000 for this wonderful cause. Many thanks to the wonderful Market Matters community for your support of this great cause.
Live Life. Have Fun. Give Back.
