The Future Investment Banker Summer Experience gives students aged 12-14 a 360-degree, fully-immersive experience of working as an investment banker in London.

Over the course of two weeks, students aged 12-14 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of investment banking that one can imagine: trading the global markets, carrying out a high scale merger between two global corporations and the opportunity to build your own world beating portfolio.
