Our flagship event, the UCL Finance Conference is the leading student finance conference in Europe, Middle-East and Africa. Each year, over 200 students from global elite universities come together to share ideas, make connections and develop their skills.

This year’s incredibly senior speaker line-up and a very careful selection process make the UCL Finance Conference one of the most prestigious events of its kind. Therefore, attending the event is an amazing, unique opportunity which should not be missed.

The 2016 UCL Finance Conference was an absolute success, selling out well in advance. The 2016 speaker line-up included Sanjay Jain, EMEA Head Technology Investment Banking at J.P. Morgan, Michael Marsh, EMEA Head of Leveraged Finance at Goldman Sachs and Michael Lavelle, UK Head of Corporate and Investment Banking at Citigroup.
