  3. Global Markets column in Felix
    We are glad to announce that this year Felix and the society have agreed a joint launch of a new “Markets” page in the weekly Union’s main newspaper. Consequently, the society is now looking for two new co-editors to help with the writing and the organisation of the page. If you are interested, please submit an application. The portal will close at 11.59pm 16th September. Feel free to contact us back if wanted for more details, our editor-in-chief will be happy to help you.

  4. Budget Outlook for this year
    Pierre has written our budget outlook for the year. It includes our main aim for the budget this year, an analysis of last year’s transactions and provides balance targets we hope to meet at the end of the year.

  5. Event coming up with 33 St James’s
    We are organising an event with 33 St James’s where speakers will explain the basics of the finance industry, the type of jobs that you can have in the industry as well as a session explaining what makes a good applicant with resume advice. We will also be reviewing resumes at the end of the session. There will also be a resume screening for advice mid-October. More details to follow.

  6. Start-up and venture capital events
    We would like to know if some of you are interested in founding a start-up now or later. Our sponsor Campus Capital is known to be helping students to access venture capital. You can find more about Campus Capital and their opportunities attached.
