Founding Enterprise Fellow. With his gift of
£1.5 million, CMC Markets Chief Executive, Peter Cruddas, is The
Enterprise Fellowship’s founding fellow and one of the largest ever
individual donors to The Prince’s Trust.
I continue to believe that young people deserve
all the opportunities they can get. My donation is my way of
helping young people across Britain and beyond to develop to their
full potential. I am delighted to be involved with this magnificent
organisation and everything it represents.
- Peter Cruddas, Chairman & Chief Executive,
commitment to young people stems from his own humble beginnings in
the East End when he left school at just 15. Peter has a real
understanding of the experience that young people face and the
difference that support and advice can make.
Founding CMC Markets in 1989, Peter’s entrepreneurial talents
have fashioned a company that is now considered a global leader in
online financial trading. The company, originally focussed on
Foreign Exchange, now handles around six million trades annually
with an average value of $2 billion per business day.
