More information on the new Markets Wiki Education website.

John Lothian News is hosting its third annual MarketsWiki Education 2015 Chicago and New York World of Opportunity Summer Intern Education Series –  in New York on July 15 and in Chicago August 4, 5 and 7.

**NOTE: As of July 21, 2015, Registration for the Friday, August 7th Chicago session is full to capacity. We still have open spots for August 4th and 5th.

We plan to add another speaker event in London this fall.

The series will feature speakers from around the financial industry who will present short 10 to 15 minute talks that cover the entire scope of our markets, from exchanges to trading firms, indexes, regulation and technology. Interns and new employees will get personal stories as well as valuable information about trends in the markets and what it takes to succeed in this industry.

In short, this is a great opportunity to introduce young talent to the financial space, give them some ideas on how and where they can get started, and help expand our industry in the years to come.

This year, we are introducing a one-day, two session event on July 15 in New York, hosted at the New York Stock Exchange. Each session is 90 minutes. In addition, 20 lucky attendees will be given a tour of the trading floor between the sessions. Also, the IFM has contributed six Series 3 exam courses, which we will distribute to attendees in New York and Chicago via a drawing at the event.
