Future Asset Dundee Roadshow, 12 November 2019

Target audience - Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old)
Future Asset Roadshows:

  • Tuesday 12 November 2019, 9.30 - 13.00, The Kydd Building, Abertay University
  • A half-day event to enable girls in the senior phase to find out more about careers in asset management and the wider financial industry.
    Employers in the sector are actively seeking to increase the number of young women working in asset management. We’re reaching out with specially designed activities to give insight into investment and the issues and skills involved.
    We'd like to invite 4 to 5 girls from each of a number of schools to come along with a teacher or adviser if possible - we do understand how busy you are, but you might find it interesting too.

    The girls do not need to be studying business or maths, though obviously they can be. They might be studying humanities and social sciences and wondering what a degree in this area might lead to. More than subject area, asset managers want people who:
    • Think about things and ask questions
    • Are interested in the world, how it works and how it could be better
    • Are prepared to argue for what they believe in

    • A bit about us
      Future Asset works to raise aspirations and confidence in girls in S4-S6, we encourage them to choose ambitious career paths and inform them about rewarding career opportunities in asset management and the financial industry. We are supported by firms in Scotland who are working to improve diversity in the sector and shape a better world of finance.
