Wawrinka is a three-time Grand Slam tournament winner. He has also won a gold medal for Switzerland at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and is a 2014 Davis Cup champion.

Charles Henri Sabet, LCG CEO, says: “We are extremely pleased to have Stan Wawrinka as LCG's global brand ambassador. He is such a talented athlete and an inspirational figure whose career journey has been characterised by hard work and dedication."

There are many similar skills required to achieve success in our business or as a tennis player. Traders need to be focused and disciplined, but have the courage to take a risk. Equally, they must respect the volatility of the markets. Stan must demonstrate this same discipline and commitment to training, to know his competition and prepare well. As he is a role model in tennis, we are role models for the online trading industry
