We aim to keep members updated with the markets and the society’s activities throughout the summer. We will send an email every week which will include the following (as they come):
• Market Updates
• Portfolio Updates
• Opinion Piece(s)
• Additional Resources (Academic Papers/ Financial Times/ Bloomberg)
• Sponsors’ content
• Future/Upcoming Activities Reminders.
Weekly Meetings & Panopto
The society will strive to keep weekly meetings running throughout the academic year. This will be the best way for all members to keep up-to-date with market news and continuously expand our knowledge. We would highly recommend anyone to attend consistently throughout the year and look forward to seeing all of you there!
We are also currently in discussion with the college to arrange for Panopto to be introduced to our weekly meetings.
Inclusivity is a huge value in ICIS. In the coming academic year, we will continue to strive towards a more diverse membership base. We will be supporting the disability initiative ‘Present Imperial’ to enable our disabled members to improve their communication skills.
This year, we will be introducing the mentor programme; pairing up Imperial Alumnus in the financial sector with current students. As a mentee, you would stand to gain deeper insights into the industry and enjoy an incredible networking opportunity. Full details of the programme will be disseminated closer to the start of AY 18/19.
That’s it for now. From the rest of the committee of ICIS, we hope you have a fantastic summer and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for the inaugural welcome event and weekly meetings!
