London Capital Group (LCG), an online forex brokerage, today announced a four-year global partnership with world No. 3 ranked Swiss professional tennis player Stan Wawrinka.
In a sponsorship deal which takes effect from today, Wawrinka will begin promoting the LCG brand at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, to be held at London’s O2 from Sunday 13th to Sunday 20th November 2016. LCG recently reported sharply increased H1 2016 revenues following a successful rebranding exercise.

Charles Henri Sabet, London Capital Group CEO, said: “We are extremely pleased to have Stan Wawrinka as LCG’s global brand ambassador. He is such a talented athlete and an inspirational figure whose career journey has been characterised by hard work and dedication.”
He added: “London Capital Group and Wawrinka share a common passion to achieve and maintain excellence in our respective fields. His unwavering commitment to his sport, make him an ideal partner for us. He is an individual who embodies the values of our company, which is why we consider this partnership much more than just branding.”
LCG highlighted the fact that the skills required to achieve success in business and in tennis are comparable. Traders need to be focused and disciplined, but also have the courage to take a risk. Equally, they must respect the volatility of the markets.
Stan must demonstrate this same discipline and commitment to training, to know his competition and prepare well. As he is a role model in tennis, LCG sees itself as a role model for the online trading industry.
