Getting Investment Banking…

for students with a disability or long-term health condition**

London
Thursday 26 October 2017

Many people believe that working in investment banking isn’t for them. This is especially true for people with disabilities or long-term health conditions – visible or otherwise. The long hours and pressures we typically associate with life at a top investment bank can present a barrier. Getting Investment Banking is designed to provide undergraduates with disabilities and long-term health conditions an insight into the true nature of the opportunities available within investment banking and the support that can be provided.

Six of the world’s leading investment banks, including Goldman Sachs, Barclays, JP Morgan and Citi, are looking forward to meeting talented first and second year students (graduating 2019 and 2020).

The event will cover areas such as:

  • An introduction to investment banking
  • How to approach the recruitment process
  • When and how to talk about your disability/health condition
  • Requesting the support you require

and will also provide you with the opportunity to meet people in a similar position and network with representatives and recruiters from six global investment banks.
