The UCL Finance Conference is the largest, most prestigious student-led finance conference in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

While this year may be different, don’t let the virtual structure of the conference deter you. With over 4 applications per place, the Conference is always overbooked and sells out well in advance so don’t wait, apply starting from Wednesday, Sept 16th! Do not miss out on this incredible opportunity!

Come meet the most senior people in finance, grow your network and significantly increase your chances of securing a spring week or summer internship!

This year, we have secured industry experts who sit at the forefront of the finance industry, including those from prestigious firms like Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and HSBC. They will be speaking about the future of finance, their experiences in the industry and how COVID-19 has irrevocably altered the industry.

In previous years, our keynote speakers have offered invaluable insight into our ambitious delegates and be sure that there are no events on this calibre in EMEA! Our history of elite speakers includes David Livingstone, EMEA CEO at Citi, and Dirk Albersmeier, EMEA Co-Head of M&A at J.P. Morgan.

Stay connected with the UCL Investment Society on Facebook as we announce this year’s speakers in the coming weeks!

With representatives from almost every major firm in the industry, the UCL Finance Conference offers delegates an exceptional opportunity to make valuable connections and learn more about the culture of different companies during the vital internship recruitment period.

With most students considering networking and connections the key to success in the finance industry, the UCL Finance Conference has continuously built up the scale of the networking event to better cater to the demands of our delegates and today, it is the easiest and most effective way to improve your chances of securing a place at an elite firm. This year, given the virtual structure, we will send you to individual breakout rooms to network your way to success!

For many students, one of the most challenging aspects of entering the finance industry is getting through technical interviews. With this in mind, the UCL Finance Conference will include a workshop from Financial Edge Training, which will give delegates an excellent overview of the major industry-standard procedures and techniques.

Financial Edge provides training to analysts at many major firms, including 7 out of the 10 major investment banks. Therefore, we are very excited to welcome them to the Conference in 2020. In recent years, the workshop has become one of the most popular and highly lauded events of the conference, with past delegates considering it an absolute must for anyone with an upcoming Assessment Centre, interview or internship!

Our virtual venue provided by AccelEvents will create an unforgettable experience for delegates from the comfort of their home/office. Our main stage will be complemented by sponsor booth, networking rooms and much more.
