2018 UCL FINANCE CONFERENCE
The 2017 UCL Finance Conference featured one of the most senior and most esteemed speaker line-ups in the history of our event. We created a unique experience for those passionate about finance, and provided the most interactive and engaging platform compared to other student-run finance conferences.
Expanding on the success of last year, we anticipate that the 2018 UCL Finance Conference will be the best to date, in terms of delegates, speakers and overall experience. Our team is working hard to to secure an even more distinguished line-up of speakers and have already confirmed names from top financial institutions. Our venue for this year’s conference, the Sheraton Grand Park Lane, will provide the perfect backdrop for delegates to engage with the finance industry.
The day will consist of six keynote speeches from industry leaders, with time included for an interactive audience Q&A. It will also feature an exclusive technical workshop led by a professional financial training provider with the goal of introducing our attendees to the key concepts and technical skills needed to break into the industry. The afternoon will include an interactive stock pitch competition allowing individuals to pitch any stock or investment idea in front of fellow delegates and a panel of senior judges who will be providing feedback to participants. The event will conclude with 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 divisions.
