Event Testimonials

"I thoroughly enjoyed the GAIN webinar and learnt a lot about careers in investment through participating; for example, I found Annabel Watson's insight into the ethical side of the industry and Anna Gallagher's experience working with China greatly interesting. This has encouraged me to explore a career in finance more broadly."

Student, University of Cambridge on COVID panel event


"I attended the GAIN panel discussion last night and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you directly (virtually). I found your advice extremely valuable and informative. As a result I am not as scared of a career in Investment Management and feel as though I should give it a go. So thank you very much for your insight and for sharing your knowledge and experiences."

Student, University of Edinburgh


"The feedback from our students was vastly positive. Two girls in particular have been thoroughly inspired and want to become investors"

Reading Blue Coat School

"Good events, moderators were great and responded to students' questions really well. In the Responsible Investing panel, I learnt a lot about the sort of career path one might have to become an investment manager and it was also great to reinforce my knowledge of what investors look for in potential investments."

Student, University of Cambridge
