Leading Swiss private banking group Julius Baer has today announced it will return as the title sponsor of the third round of the FIA Formula E Championship. Held on Saturday, 19 December, the race will be titled the 2015 FIA Formula E Julius Baer Punta del Este ePrix.
Julius Baer has recently confirmed the extension of the contract as the Global Partner of Formula E until the end of season five and the title sponsorship of the Punta del Este race shows its commitment in an important region for the bank. For Julius Baer, Formula E, with its visionary approach and global reach, is an ideal sponsorship platform as it stands for many values that Julius Baer shares, such as innovation, sustainability and forward-looking pioneering spirit.
“Uruguay is the ideal location to host a Formula E race and we are happy that we return as title sponsor,” said Eduardo Nogueira, CEO Julius Baer Uruguay. “The country invests heavily in clean energy and hosting a Formula E race, which has at its core the aim to create a change towards more sustainable mobility, is a perfect match. Julius Baer is very happy to be the title sponsor in this country.”
Alejandro Agag, CEO of Formula E, added: “After announcing Julius Baer as our Global Partner for the next four seasons, the bank continues to show its support and commitment to Formula E and to our values of sustainability and innovation. We are delighted to welcome them back as a title sponsor for Saturday’s race, which we are sure is going to be a fantastic spectacle.”
