Finance professional is proud winner of a Polestar 2, the latest EV in the market, in Saxo Markets Lucky Draw
SINGAPORE, 28 February 2021 – Saxo Markets, the online trading and investment specialist that connects people to investment opportunities in global capital markets, has announced the winner of its months-long lucky draw, in conjunction with Polestar, the latest entrant into the electric vehicle space in Singapore.
The lucky winner of the Polestar 2 is Mr Aishwarya Kunal, pictured below with Chris Lum, Regional Head of Digital Sales, Saxo Markets at the Wearnes Automotive (Polestar) showroom for the prize presentation. Mr Kunal, 39, is a finance professional who has been trading and investing for almost 15 years. He became a client with Saxo Markets in August 2021.
Commenting on his win, Mr Kunal said, “The Polestar 2 arrived in Singapore in December, and it’s of course a highly anticipated entrant now that EVs are gaining much traction in the market. I think Saxo is a global brand that is trustworthy, and for me, trust comes first in the trading experience. I was very excited to know that the grand prize for Saxo’s lucky draw, which started in October, is a Polestar 2. As an existing client of Saxo, I simply continued to trade the markets to participate in the lucky draw. It was an amazing feeling having won the Polestar 2 and I really cherish that.”
The promotion ran from October until Chinese New Year, rewarding new and existing clients with entries into lucky draws for cash prizes every week (for $888) and every month ($8,888), with the grand prize being a Polestar 2 electric vehicle, which was drawn on 16 February. In total, Saxo gave away 22 cash prizes over the course of the lucky draw.
Polestar is part of the Volvo Group owned by Geely, which is Saxo’s majority shareholders. The Polestar 2 was officially launched in Singapore in December 2021, and the five-door fastback is Polestar’s sole offering for now in the market.
“We would like to offer our heartiest congratulations to Mr Aishwarya Kunal for winning the Polestar 2. The Polestar 2 is a great EV and to be honest, I’m slightly disappointed that I was not eligible to win it myself. Nonetheless, it was great to see it go to a good home and meet Aishwarya's family,” Chris Lum, Regional Head of Digital Sales, Saxo Markets, said.
“As electric vehicles continue to be driving the future of mobility, Saxo is committed to always offer our clients sustainable investment options as well. The wide range of Investment Themes and inspirational content, the dedicated Green Investing theme to invest in future-forward companies as well as the latest Women in Leadership basket are all examples of how we offer guiderails for our clients to navigate the markets and make an impact,” Lum added.
