    The Financial Trading Society

    Service

    The Financial Trading Society at Coventry University is a network of like minded individuals interested in expanding their careers and networks through learning and bettering their understanding of trading. To date, the society has won the top 3 best society award 2014/15 and has amassed over 100 members in each intake year, the most of any academic society. Moreover, the society has been featured in multiple magazine articles locally and on a global trading website highlighting its success.
    The format of the society involves weekly meetings and special events that include guest speakers, trips abroad and social nights out. The society now has 3 current sponsors that detail: Western Sahara, our trading and corporate sponsor, Hiredgrad, our professional and career advising sponsor and the Oak Inn, our catering sponsor for food after meetings and for events organised for the society.
    Our typical year of events include but are not limited to: coffee afternoons for career advice and advancement, multiple guest speaker events throughout the year to showcase a career in finance and answer any and all questions members may have, a trip abroad to Amsterdam to visit the oldest stock exchange in the world and experience the culture through a rural canal cruise all for just £20 per member for 4 days in early February, social nights out throughout the year to boost networking and meet new people and finally a trip to London to visit Bloomberg headquarters and other institutions.
    In the past, the society has been invited to attend The Trading Challenge held annually in London to compete with universities from around the country. In addition to this, competitions between academic societies in Coventry is common and many students relish in taking part.
    The society can also be seen as a programme for students from every background to come together and discuss ideas for the future, with particular regard to careers in the business and finance sector as the society is very well connected. Members in the past have gone on to internships at Goldman Sachs and placement years at international companies with many looking back at their time in the society as extremely beneficial in interviews.
