Our People

Our focus is on our people.

Both Directors had the good fortune to join strong graduate programmes and were given many opportunities to grow – via role rotations, education, coaching and mentoring.

Consequently, we strive to place our employees with clients where we know they will grow.

We provide a learning pathway to ensure our employees are qualified to a gold standard, giving them a competitive edge to further their career.

We create a programme of webinars and events over the three years.

Our employees are personally mentored by the Directors, who have performed or been accountable for most roles our employees will be assigned to, and their experience and support delivers success for both employees and our clients.

Talented and motivated graduates :

  • With a minimum 2:1 degree in Finance/ Maths/ Accountancy/ Economics or similar discipline.
  • With up to two years’ prior experience in a working environment.

Our Digital Learning Offering

Financial Markets, Products & Services

A thorough understanding of financial markets starts with an appreciation of the value objectives of the various participants in the market, and provides insight into the mechanics of products, trades and strategies and the techniques for analysing companies and risk.

Our courses focus and connect these essential elements to help you achieve such a level of understanding and be able to operate in the financial markets with confidence.

Compliance & Regulations

How can you do the best for your clients whilst doing the best for your firm too?

Our Compliance courses help equip you with everything you need to know and do to remain competent and compliant.

Personal Development

Professional skills are about more than presentations and time management. You also need sophisticated people skills to remain competitive in the current marketplace and prepare for the future of work.

Our courses enable you to apply both technical and soft skills to navigate complex organisational challenges.

Project Management

A project is considered successful if it achieves its objectives to the expected level of quality within an agreed timescale and budget. In theory, this sounds straightforward – but how does it work in practice?

Our Project Management series equips you with everything you need to know and do to be part of a successful project team.
