I am personally invested in GKP and felt that I could trade the share and hopefully make a profit for the charity, I used the City Index trading platform who were very supportive and refunded back all the financing costs associated with the trade.

Isys Group was one of many companies included in the Sue Ryder business challenge Big Wigs.

Samantha Boardman, a fundraiser at Sue Ryder - said: “Our challenge to local businesses was to take a £50 note and over a four-month period prove just how good an entrepreneur they were by making a sizeable profit. There were no rules to this challenge only that the activities were legal and the £50 was returned to us at the end.”

Mark invested his £50 note along with some money of his own and took to the spread betting market, trading a London oil explorer GKP Gulf Keystone Petroleum listed on the AIM market. Mark Nutter of Isys commented on the achievement "I am personally invested in GKP and felt that I could trade the share and hopefully make a profit for the charity, I used the City Index trading platform who were very supportive and refunded back all the financing costs associated with the trade. Initially I was sat on a loss for the first month but stuck with it and eventually turned a healthy profit for the charity."

Samantha Boardman of Sue Ryder said: “Mark embraced the idea of entrepreneurial spirit and invested the money with a 12,600 per cent return. This money will enable us to deliver more than 200 hours of care. I only hope that this will encourage other traders to take on the challenge and thank Mark for showing it can be done.”
