ThinkMarkets is partnering up with British boxer Amir Khan to help young kids off the streets and into jobs.
We are pleased to announce that we are official sponsors of world champion boxer Amir Khan. However, this is not simply an exchange of logos. With Amir Khan on our side, we plan to work on a list of initiatives to make a difference to the lives of London kids from disadvantaged families.

To most people Amir Khan is known for his success in the ring. However, the former Olympic silver medallist has a long history of contributing to charitable causes and this is exactly what attracted us to working with him.
Amir Khan commented: “Sport has a unique power to influence people from all walks of life and I have been committed to helping underprivileged individuals throughout my career. ThinkMarkets share my passion for providing positive change through sporting initiatives and I look forward to collaborating with them on a number of exciting projects.”
By joining forces with Amir Khan we aim to teach youngsters the importance of mental discipline and provide them with key skills to help them achieve their goals.
We also plan to host a series of trading masterclasses with the aim to educate traders how to improve their trading by applying Amir Khan’s secrets to success.
Nauman Anees, Co-founder of ThinkMarkets, said: “Successful athletes, like Amir, are very similar to winning traders. They became who they are through dedication, practice and hard work”
Amir Khan marked his return to professional boxing in April 2018 when he knocked out Phil Lo Greco within 40 seconds. The 31-year-old is back in the ring on Saturday 8th September against Colombian welterweight Samuel Vargas.
