Keynote Speakers

Last year, we have secured 5 of the most senior speakers from across the finance industry, including those from prestigious firms like BlackRock, Citi and JP Morgan, to speak about the future of finance and their vast experiences in the industry. Each year, our senior speakers offer invaluable insight and advice to our ambitious delegates who aspire to enter the world of finance and no other event offers the opportunity to listen to such prominent figures. Ensure you stay connected with the UCL Investment Society on Facebook as we announce this year’s speaker line-up in the months leading up to the conference.



With representatives from almost every major firm in the industry, the UCL Finance Conference offers delegates an exceptional opportunity to make valuable connections and learn more about the culture of different companies during the vital internship recruitment period. Delegates are also invited to attend the UCL Investment Society’s event on ‘How to Network’, as preparation for the conference. With most students considering networking and connections the key to success in the finance industry, the UCL Finance Conference has continuously built up the scale of the networking event to better cater to the demands of our delegates.

Investment Banking Workshop

For many students, one of the most challenging aspects of entering the finance industry is getting through the technical interviews. With this in mind, the UCL Finance Conference will include a workshop from Financial Edge Training, which will give delegates an excellent overview of the major, industry-standard procedures and techniques. In recent years, the workshop has become one of the most popular and highly-lauded events of the conference, with past delegates considering it a vital aspect to distinguish you from the pack when applying for internships and graduate roles.

This year, the UCL Finance Conference 2021 will take place on 29th October 2021 at the fabulous De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms!
