13 June 2023

The FlowBank Championship has reached its grand finale. Extraordinary as an athlete and just as ruthless in the markets: Pierre Gasly is the big winner!

After a month of intense competition filled with countless exchanges and invaluable lessons, the FlowBank Championship concluded yesterday in Zurich.

The mystery athlete was finally revealed, and the event featured inspiring testimonials from athletes who shared their experiences with FlowBank and the valuable knowledge they gained throughout the championship.
The event was hosted by tv personality Remo Kaufmann, accompanied by tennis legend Martina Hingis, and FlowBank ambassador Severin Lüthi, the former coach of Roger Federer. This unique gathering brought together some of the biggest names in sports.

"We are delighted to announce the resounding success of the FlowBank Championship and its impact on our community. This initiative not only showcased the exceptional abilities of these athletes but also highlighted the potential that trading and investing hold for everyone. The championship has inspired a wide audience to explore new horizons and seize opportunities in the financial markets", said Charles Henri Sabet CEO and Founder of FlowBank.

Now let's reveal the official results:

Pierre Gasly, the French Formula 1 champion, secured the well-deserved 1st place. Following closely behind, we have Jan Blachowicz, the Polish UFC fighter, in 2nd place, and Alexander Zverev, the German tennis player, in 3rd place. Dimitrij Ovtcharov, the German Olympic table tennis champion, Amna Al Qubaisi, the Emirati motor racing champion, Kevin Mbabu, the Swiss soccer player, Gianmarco Tamberi, the Italian Olympic high jump champion, and Rossella Fiamingo, the Italian world fencing champion, demonstrated remarkable performances and secured their spots.

In addition, the mystery trader taking part in the competition from the start was finally revealed as Holger Rune. On the heels of Roland Garros and heading soon to Wimbledon Holger shared his experience in a few words, "I've enjoyed this championship with FlowBank, and I've been able to learn and test strategies that have given me confidence in managing my finances. Just as in professional tennis, confidence is the key to success”

For a month, these athletes left their comfort zones to compete in the financial markets, making innovative trades and strategies. During the championship, world markets remained fragile, despite strong activity in the United States, and inflation remained high in Europe. It was against this backdrop that the athletes competed to achieve the highest return on investment: over 800 trades were made by the athletes, who made extensive use of CFD instruments across 6 asset classes!1

The primary objective of the FlowBank Championship is to foster engagement and demonstrate the accessibility of trading and investing. Throughout the competition, these professional athletes ventured into the financial markets, showcasing their determination, adaptability, and strategic acumen.

Charles Henri Sabet, founder, and CEO of FlowBank, further expressed his enthusiasm for FlowBank’s ongoing projects aimed at improving the education and expertise of its clients "In my opinion, we are only at the beginning of a new era where every individual can take charge of their finances and make the choices that best align with their individual needs."

Building upon the success of this year's event, FlowBank remains committed to pushing boundaries and delivering even more impactful experiences in the future. A second edition of the FlowBank Championship is planned for 2024, the dates and participants have not yet been announced.
