Swissquote, Manchester United’s first official global forex & online financial trading partner, has launched an innovative new video series “Take the Lead”, demonstrating the synergies between FX trading and football.
The series starred Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney and his fellow Red Devils stars Sergio Romero, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
The “Take the Lead” series showcases the similarities between players and traders in a unique split screen format. Created from a point of view angle, the video details two viewpoints in 180 degrees from the perspective of a player and a trader, giving viewers a unique 360˚ insight into the mental and physical preparation required away from the football pitch as well as with forex trading.
Each video in the series is also set in a different living space, representing how FX trading is not restricted to the office or trading floor, but is in fact something that anyone can manage on the go in real-time in any environment.
“There are actually a lot of similarities between the worlds of football and trading, with regards to many of the skills and knowledge required to be successful. Through the ‘Take the Lead’ series, we wanted to highlight these emotional connections while allowing the viewer to see how they are incorporated in the Manchester United’s player’s everyday lives, through four different scenarios, said Marc Burki, CEO and co-Founder of Swissquote.
“At Swissquote we take pride in our tactical approach, providing quality expertise and advice which enables our clients to make the best possible decisions to stay one step ahead in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of Forex trading.”
