LAT has partnered with InvestIN to offer students the chance to learn about financial trading and get that real-life trading experience.
InvestIn deliver immersive career experiences to students aged 15-18 who aspire to break into some of the world’s most desirable industries by creating the ‘ultimate work experience’ through interactive simulations, site visits, seminars, networking sessions and career coaching guidance. They have partnerships with top schools and financial investment firms such as Deutsche Bank and the London stock exchange
For their Young Investment Banker Summer Internships, LAT has organised a series of half-day sessions for more than 40 students learn about financial markets and trading and experience a slice of life in a real-life trading environment. Led by LATs Programme Manager, Asanka, the students will take part in a short introductory course, followed by a real-time trading competition to test their new-found knowledge and skills.
Paddy Osborn, Academic Dean and Managing Director said: “We are thrilled to welcome the InvestIN students to our London trading floor to give them a taste of life in the City. Young people aren’t generally taught much about financial markets and trading at school, so we’re very happy to be able to give them an insight into the real world of finance and give them a taste of this exciting industry.”
