Event brings together industry leaders, who share stories and ideas with “the next generation of market participants.”

John Lothian News is bringing its MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity series to London for the third straight year on Monday, October 31, 2016. The registration is up and ready on the MarketsWiki Education page of the John Lothian News website.

Interns, new employees and anyone interested in learning more about opportunities, trends and careers in the capital and derivatives markets should attend. Please pass this information on to anyone who you think would be interested in attending.

The goal of the series is very simple. We bring together industry leaders, professionals and academics to share information, stories and ideas about our financial markets with the next generation – students and young professionals. With short, personal and insightful presentations, we educate, inspire and aim to attract these students to the financial markets.

In London, we are holding three sessions on October 31 at the Booth School of Business of the University of Chicago at the Woolgate Exchange, 25 Basinghall St., London EC2V 5HA.

The day’s events feature some of the top professionals in the financial services space. Our 90-minute sessions will start at 10 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. The final session will be followed by a social event at a local establishment.

There is no cost to attend the series, but seating is limited and is available on a first to register basis.


Other European events in Stockholm and Frankfurt are still being planned and we hope to announce details soon.

Our list of speakers in London includes:

    • Steve Grob, director of group strategy of Fidessa
    • Andrew Gibbins, product and marketing strategist at Trading Technologies for Europe and APAC

Videos of our speakers from the 2016 Chicago and New York events can be found on our Marketswiki Education YouTube page, or on the John Lothian News website.

We encourage any student or young professional who is interested in taking a look at the breadth and scope of these markets to come out and hear what our speakers have to say about trends, new ideas and personal stories, meet them and ask questions.

CME Group is the Global Premier Sponsor of the series and CBOE, London Metal Exchange and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business are event sponsors of the London event. Without their support, we could not make this program happen.
