MarketsWiki Education is headed back to London next month for another round of our World of Opportunity speaker series geared toward “the next generation of market participants” – college students, interns, young professionals and anyone interested in the financial markets.
We will hold three sessions, one on October 14 and two on October 15, all at Nasdaq, Woolgate Exchange, in the heart of the City’s financial district. The events feature executives from the CME Group, Nasdaq, London Metal Exchange and Euronext as well as fintech entrepreneurs, proprietary traders, bankers, regulators and more.
Registration is officially open!
With generous support from CME Group, the global premier sponsor of MarketsWiki Education, the London event comes at the heels of two wildly successful events in New York and Chicago in the summer of 2015. Our MarketsWiki Education talks feature speakers from around the financial industry who give short, 10- to 12 minute presentations that cover the entire scope of our markets.
The goal for the event is very simple – provide great information about trends, opportunities and skills needed to succeed in the financial industry.
Each day also includes networking sessions with our speakers, providing attendees an opportunity to meet fellow students, interns and future colleagues.
In short, this is a great opportunity to introduce young talent to the financial space, point them in the right direction, and even get a foot in the door to this vibrant, dynamic industry with a fascinating history and a world of opportunity.
