What is going to be covered?

The power of L&D within Hedge funds and Investment Management

It can often be challenging to get the ‘buy in’ for learning programs within organisations. We will be speaking to a panel of individuals who have successfully made learning programs a priority within established Hedge funds. They will be sharing their knowledge on, how to convince the organisation that learning is a necessity and not just a luxury.  

Impactful Communication: how to get your message heard

Studies are now showing an accelerated reduction in attention span of individuals, and therefore it is essential that clear and concise communication is consistently delivered. Whether one is speaking to one person or to a large audience, it is imperative that the speaker is equipped with the skills that propel audience members to take action. We will run through an interactive exercise where participants will understand how to read and adjust to audience’s responses.  

Blockchain, DLT, Python & Crypto – the basics

From Cryptocurrencies to self-driving cars, technology is pushing the boundaries of everyday life. The way we make payments, travel, and manage our home is being revolutionized by technological advances. Understanding how this technology works and the true value of these advancements is fundamental to your success. Whether you work with clients internally or externally, being confident around concepts like ‘Machine Learning’ and explain ‘The Blockchain’, will mark the difference between good and distinguished. 

ESG – what does it mean?

The last decade has seen exponential growth in ESG investing worldwide. Due to global concerns, regulatory pressure and client demands ESG has become a priority in the world of investing and moved up the agenda for many organisations. We will be breaking down the areas of ESG, and ensure you are up to date on the current trends, challenges and opportunities. 

Diversity & Inclusion

There’s no denying the evidence that multiculturalism and diversity contribute to a successful and creative work dynamic. However, each of us carry a set of biases that influence our decision making, leading us to often choose candidates similar to ourselves. Creating awareness of bias and taking research-based and practical steps toward weakening the power of it, has been proven to increase inclusivity and diversity in the workplace. We will run through an exercise where you will discover your unconscious bias and how to break through it. Only by having these uncomfortable conversations around race, gender, sexuality and culture, can one feel confident to tackle and overcome them.  

Women’s Empowerment – Building a community within Hedge Funds

As the famous saying goes “Nothing is new. Everything is recycled”. However, this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t aim to innovate, create, and inspire change, but that we can look to those who have already paved impressive paths before us to take inspiration, learning through observation. 

We will explore the journey of successful women within Hedge funds who have made an impact in the professional world. We will look specifically at the achievements and successes in their professional path, as well as the strategies they used to overcome challenges, empowering themselves and others around them. We hope this will allow you to become aware of your own blocks or belief systems and break through them, in order to build a community of empowered leaders who can overcome challenges together in the finance industry.
