Graduates account for almost half of our annual Investment20/20 intake. It’s not just economics and business graduates however; the industry is keen to attract graduates from a wider range of subject backgrounds who can contribute a broad base of skills and knowledge.
Below are two of our careers outreach activities, but contact us if you would like us to support other careers events that you have planned.

This session introduces students to the purpose of investment management, career pathways and routes in. Students will gain key information and statistics on the investment management labour market and the types of skills and jobs that will be in demand in the future. Students will hear from an Investment Ambassador or current Investment20/20 Graduate Trainee, learning how they managed their journey from education to work. Students will also receive information on the Investment20/20 Trainee and Apprenticeship programme.
