THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS STUDENT CONFERENCE
IN EUROPE, MIDDLE-EAST AND AFRICA
“I always enjoy your conference, it is the best one we have seen and we will be happy to come back whenever you need us.”
Managing Director, Jefferies
The UCL Finance Conference is the flagship event of our society and has established itself as one of the biggest and most prestigious finance conferences in Europe, Middle-East and Africa, attracting the finest talent from across the globe. The event has served as a vibrant and educative platform since its inception in 2010, connecting ambitious students with industry leaders, through a day of presentations, workshops and networking sessions in collaboration with our sponsors. Previous partners for the conference include J.P. Morgan, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. With over 5,000 combined social media followers and 10,000 past applications, the UCL Finance Conference brand has grown to be more renowned than ever.
2017 UCL FINANCE CONFERENCE
Expanding on the success of last year, we anticipate that the 2017 UCL Finance Conference will be the biggest ever, in terms of delegates, speakers and overall experience. Our team is working to secure an even more distinguished line-up of speakers than the previous year and have already confirmed names from top financial institutions.
Our main goal for the UCL Finance Conference is to focus on engagement and interaction between delegates and firms, so attendees can gain the greatest insight into the industry and the culture of the firms.
The morning will include the bulk of keynote speeches from industry leaders, with time included for an interactive audience Q&A and there will be a technical workshop in which firm representatives will engage with small groups of delegates with the goal of introducing them to the key concepts and technical skills needed to break into the industry. The afternoon consists of an interactive stock pitch competition allowing individuals to pitch any stock or investment idea in front of the delegates and receiving feedback from a panel of senior judges from Jefferies, followed by an engaging panel discussion on the most relevant current affairs affecting the industry. Throughout the day, there will be networking opportunities for the delegates to engage with representatives from a variety of firms and departments.
