Taped in the immediate aftermath of the election, Vested CEO Daniel P. Simon’s latest interview on Asset TV instead addressed a positive development: Bloomberg Tradebook’s Charity Day, an annual opportunity for the financial community to support philanthropic causes by donating trading commissions to Bloomberg-supported charities.

It generated more than $1m in gross commissions, the net of which will be donated to the 20 participating charities, the company stated.

The Bloomberg charity event “brings in celebrities and sports personalities, and they take over the trading floor and run trades for the day,” Simon said.
