Often regarded as a complex industry, our first FutureCareers Seminar of the new academic year will try to put into context some of the key functions of Banking, defined as: ‘the activity of accepting and safeguarding money owned by other individuals and entities, and then lending out this money in order to conduct economic activities such as making profit or simply covering operating expenses’. 

We will have a panel of speakers, made up of specialists in M&A, asset management, corporate broking and trading (more detailed bios to follow).  They will aim to demystify how their particular area operates, how they inter-relate and how to progress a career within the industry.  As ever, there will be a chance to put your questions to them at the end of the session.  

The Seminar will be delivered online to ensure as many of our Reed’s community can attend.  Please use the form below to sign up; once registered, a Zoom link will be sent to the email address provided a few hours before the Seminar commences on 28 September.
