ICAP Charity Day

Since ICAP Charity Day began in 1993, we have donated more than £155 million to more than 2,700 amazing causes globally. By ICAP committing to giving 100% revenues and our brokers giving 100% of their commissions to charities on one day each year, we have positively changed the lives of thousands of people in need.

“It’s the energy and commitment of our brokers and clients that makes ICAP Charity Day a force for positive change.”

Championing social mobility: National Numeracy partnership

At TP ICAP we are ‘numbers people’, so we know that numeracy is one of life’s crucial building blocks. Numeracy skills are crucial for the success of our industry and for success in our industry. According to research we funded, some 78% of young British women, aged 18-21, said they would not consider a career in financial services, with 43% citing a lack of confidence using numbers as a reason. In an effort to transform the talent pipeline, not only for our Group but also our industry as a whole, we have focused on helping more people become more comfortable with numbers. By improving basic numeracy skills, opportunities and life chances are improved for all.

Since 2018 we have had a significant partnership with the UK charity National Numeracy, which focuses on building the nation’s number confidence and skills. We have funded the development of tools and resources to help people check and develop their numeracy skills, creating adaptive online learning environments that build confidence as well as skills. With our help, National Numeracy has also been able to develop its Family Maths Toolkit into a wealth of curriculum-linked activities to support children’s numeracy outside of the classroom. These resources make a real difference to thousands of families, carers, teachers and children.

We have also worked with National Numeracy to drive awareness and engagement among policymakers and society by providing crucial research and insight. In 2019, we published the ‘Building a Numerate Nation’ report on how to improve confidence, belief and skills, and in 2020, we published a report focused on how to remove barriers for women: ‘The Confidence Gap: Women and Number Confidence’.

TP ICAP is a founding member of the National Numeracy Leadership Council (represented by our Executive Director and Group General Counsel, Philip Price), working with businesses across the UK to address the challenges uncovered in these reports and work in partnership to implement solutions. TP ICAP is also a founding partner of the UK’s Number Confidence Week, which takes place annually in November and aims to empower people across the UK to feel more assured around numbers.
