Singapore, 5 March 2018
CONNECT by Crossbridge, Singapore’s first and largest robo-advisor, is proud to announce that it has become a Gold Sponsor of the Australian and New Zealand Association (ANZA). ANZA supports its members in the areas of sports, social events, careers and social responsibility, and has a membership base of more than 7,000 representing a diverse range of nationalities.
The 18-month partnership includes sponsorship of the “Chill, Chat, Connect: Networking Series” – a series of three business networking events covering a range of topics for a corporate audience – and Team Sponsorship in the ANZA Soccer Junior League.
Taking place in March, June and November this year, the “Chill, Chat, Connect: Networking Series” provides a platform for professionals to connect over topics on Paradoxical Thinking, Cyber Security and Confidence as an Inside Job. Guest speakers have been invited for each session to explore the theme with a corporate audience.
CONNECT by Crossbridge will also be a Team Sponsor of ANZA’s U8-U18 Soccer Junior League from August 2018 to April 2019. With more than 950 players, representing 21 nationalities, the ANZA Junior Soccer League provides opportunities for children aged 3 to 18 to participate in organised grassroots soccer in a fun, friendly and social environment in Singapore. Organised by parent volunteers, the Saturday Club League encourages more involvement and social interaction between parents and their children as they support their teams by taking on the roles of Coach, Assistant Coach and Team Parent while forging relationships on and off the pitch every Saturday.
“CONNECT by Crossbridge aims to help people take back control of their investments and give them the freedom to achieve their goals – in business, family life and giving back to the community,” said Charlie O’Flaherty, Partner and Head of Digital Strategy & Distribution, Crossbridge Capital. “This sponsorship helps us to make a direct contribution to the vibrant and active ANZA community through networking and sport. We hope it will have a positive influence on those involved in both of these excellent initiatives.”
Kerry Low, General Manager, ANZA, said, “We are delighted to welcome CONNECT by Crossbridge, Singapore’s first digital financial advisory platform, as a Gold Partner to ANZA. Our business networking and junior soccer league events are at the heart of the ANZA community and calendar. With the support of CONNECT by Crossbridge, they continue to go from strength to strength.”

Today, backed by two of the world’s leading banks as minority investors, Crossbridge Capital operates in many of the world’s leading Emerging Markets supported by a team of 34 professionals in four Crossbridge Capital locations: London, Singapore, Monaco and Malta.
