FlowBank Championship: When world-class athletes take on the financial markets

9 May 2023

FlowBank, the Swiss online bank, announces its latest venture – the FlowBank Championship, a month-long online trading tournament between famous athletes. Through this initiative, FlowBank wants to show that financial markets can and should be accessible to everyone.


FlowBank signs a historic partnership with 9 elite athletes for the first-ever FlowBank Championship. The FlowBank Championship is a first of its kind, the only trading championship featuring only top athletes. It will take place from 10 May to 10 June 2023. Behind this project is a clear commitment: FlowBank is pursuing its mission to make finance accessible to everyone, by offering intuitive technology, educational content, and daily financial market news. This first edition will feature nine new brand ambassadors, namely:
  • Pierre Gasly, French Formula 1 racing driver
  • Alexander Zverev, German Olympic champion in tennis
  • Kevin Mbabu, Swiss football player
  • Jan Blachowicz, Polish top ranked UFC fighter
  • Gianmarco Tamberi, Italian Olympic champion in high jump
  • Dimitrij Ovtcharov, German Olympic champion in table tennis
  • Rossella Fiamingo, Italian Olympic champion in fencing
  • Amna Al Qubaisi, Emirati racing driver pioneer
  • A ninth Mystery Athlete


These exceptional top-class athletes bring a wealth of competitive spirit to the competition, all of them aiming to achieve the highest return on investment on a virtual trading account. Their evolution and results can be followed on FlowBank’s Instagram channel over the course of several weeks. It will culminate in a VIP closing awards ceremony, in the presence of all athletes, where the winners will be announced, and the Mystery Athlete’s identity will be revealed.


"I am delighted to announce the first edition of the FlowBank Championship, which represents a unique opportunity for us to partner with top athletes who share our commitment to making financial markets accessible to everyone. I believe that traditional investing requires advanced technology and financial knowledge that today's retail consumers may not be able to access. FlowBank is there to fill this gap,” said Charles Henri Sabet, Founder, and CEO of FlowBank.


During the championship, the athletes will have the opportunity to experience FlowBank’s platforms and services. They will also receive educational content to better understand the markets in order to set up their own successful strategy.


Through this engagement, FlowBank reaffirms its commitment to delivering an exceptional user experience while breaking down barriers to entry.


Launched in November 2020 FlowBank continues to experience significant growth. Today, it provides access to over 50,000 instruments, zero commission on Swiss stocks, and the lowest fees across all asset classes, making investing truly accessible to all. The company will continue to considerably invest in its technology to better serve its clients with new features and products including a multi-currency debit card coming soon. Its vision is to become the Swiss leader in online banking.

“FlowBank is a true fintech that aims to provide innovative financial solutions to private clients and businesses. Our commitment to technology and a data-driven culture enables us to be a serious competitor in the market, specifically in our ability to provide a personalized client experience " said Charles Henri Sabet.
