GAIN Events at Schools and Universities

GAIN exists to change the way girls and young women think about the world of investing. To do that, we host talks and events across schools and universities in the UK. If you'd like to host a talk, please let us know here.

 

*Due to current situation with COVID-19, our in-person talks have been postponed. However, we are conducting school talks and university panel events virtually. If this is of interest, please don't hesitate to get in touch!*

Event Testimonials

"I just want to thank you and Gain as I have just come off the CV clinic call which was very informative. I also attended the CFA introduction which was unbelievably helpful to me. I am a massive fan of Gain and recommend it to everyone I meet- your resources are absolutely incredible and there is nothing like it around."

Student, University of Exeter

 

"I've been following Gain UK ever since I attended a Women in Investment Management event in the pre-COVID era and after substantial research am now committed to pursuing a career in this field."

Student, University of Cambridge

"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

 

"The work GAIN is doing is fantastic! It was gratifying to be a part of it"

Volunteer speaker & Partner, Private Equity

 

"Well structured, very helpful, very insightful."

Student, University of Cambridge

 

"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
