Future Asset Event 24 September 2019

Aug 14, 2019

Background

The ‘Future Asset’ Initiative was created in 2017 to promote greater diversity in the Investment Management industry. A one-day conference was held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on 22 September 2017. 405 S5-S6 students and 109 teachers from across Scotland attended. More details can be found here.

 

The aims of Future AS5ET are to:

  • Raise aspirations and confidence in young women across Scotland, encouraging them to choose ambitious career paths.
  • Create a network connecting pupils, teachers and careers advisors to the diversity of opportunities in asset management and the wider financial industry.
  • Support, inspire and inform young women and schools through access to events, role models, learning materials, mentoring and work experience.

To further these aims, Future AS5ET has already delivered two half-day ‘roadshow’ events for S5 and S6 girls, one in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow, with plans for 3 more before the end of the year. These events were facilitated by volunteer Future Asset Ambassadors from Investment Management firms in Edinburgh.

 

In addition, Future AS5ET will host a conference in Strathclyde University’s Technology and Innovation Centre on Tuesday 24 September 2019.

 

Getting Involved

A consistent highlight commented on by the young people who attend Future Asset events is the opportunity to meet and speak to a range of people currently working in Investment Management. Many of them have no idea of the wide range of roles available in this industry, particularly those in Operations and support functions, before they attend a Future Asset event.
