With the England cricket team on winning form in the Ashes series Down Under, cricket is certainly hitting the headlines and this year Fairbairn Private Bank has added its own support by entering into a one-year sponsorship agreement with the Stock Exchange Cricket Club (SECC).

The bank, which was originally based in the British offshore islands, was the first British offshore bank to move onshore when it opened its London office in September 2008 and the sponsorship forms part of an ongoing campaign to raise its profile in the UK.

Commenting on the sponsorship agreement, David Stearn, head of business development, said: “We are delighted to support the Stock Exchange Cricket Club and wish them every success for the season ahead. It is a very exciting time for us as we continue to expand and promote our asset management offering in the UK so we jumped at the opportunity to work with such a highly-regarded club.”

The Stock Exchange Cricket Club was first established in 1950 and is a family of like-minded individuals who share common business interests and a love of cricket.  The club is open to anyone who works for a member firm of the London Stock Exchange and includes players from the fund management, broking, corporate finance and investment communities, across all age ranges – there is even a veterans’ side. Around ten fixtures are held each year against a variety of opposition, from village sides to the MCC.
