LMAX Exchange’s crew meet their clients
Fintech company LMAX Exchange’s yacht squad never missed a scope to network. LMAX Exchange, presently leading Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, was on the 3rd to dock in Qingdao, in China, earlier this week. They are using their time in the city to catch up with the foreign clients of the firm.
The company asked a select group of eighty clients from the place to meet and sail with the skipper along with the whole racing crew. Fintech execs allured the clients to a formal business meet on Monday with call of a tour of the ship as well as a scope to experience life on the high ocean.
David Mercer, the LMAX Exchange chief, who became a part of the racing crew at the beginning of this year on their journey from Sydney, in Australia, used the team’s win to convince clients from private equity companies that his company is all about success.
He stated that they are very serious regarding success and ambition. Asia is a great market for their business and with many significant clients based in the region, they felt that this might be a fitting place to celebrate the success of Team LMAX Exchange along with their valued clients in such an inspirational and unique way.
The Qingdao stopover of the Clipper race marks the end of race 8 of the fourteen stage worldwide challenge. The next race to Seattle will set sail on Sunday, taking teams around six-thousand miles through the Pacific Ocean. The seafarers will come back to the St Katherine Docks later in July.
