Tilney Bestinvest Liverpool opens its doors to city’s future investment professionals

06 July 2015
 

Twenty five students taking Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) qualifications from schools and colleges across Liverpool will gather in the iconic Royal Liver Building on the Liverpool waterfront this week to take part in an inaugural Career in Investment Management Insight Conference on 9th and 10th July.

The two-day event, hosted by investment management and financial planning group Tilney Bestinvest and organised by the CISI and the Liverpool & North Wales CISI committee, includes a “Liver Bird’s Den” session, (as opposed to Dragon’s Den!) where local leading practitioners - “Liver Birds”- will judge the student’s investment pitches.

The conference, which includes opportunities to learn more about the industry, meet practitioners and develop in-demand employability skills, is the culmination of a work experience week for the students, six of whom will have spent the previous three days following a comprehensive work experience programme at Tilney Bestinvest.  The remaining 19 students will be based in other financial services companies in the city for the first three days of the work experience.

Students aged 16-18 attending from King David High School, St John Bosco Arts College, Calderstones School and North Liverpool Academy take their CISI qualifications through Liverpool City Council’s Liverpool Learning Partnership CISI- sponsored programme delivered through Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College. Students attending from Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ School study CISI qualifications as part of their Economics A level and students from The Liverpool Blue Coat School are interested in finding out more about a career in the industry.

James Charlton, Associate at Tilney Bestinvest and CISI Liverpool Committee Education Secretary & VP said: “The Institute has invested greatly in the region’s education programme over the last few years, providing 6th form students with the opportunity to study CISI examinations. This year, the region’s firms are providing quality work experience placements for students in order to give them a greater understanding of how our firms operate and how day-to-day business activity links in with the subject material.”

Katy Dixon, Managing Director and Head of Tilney Bestinvest’s Liverpool Office commented: “The work experience programme puts an emphasis on the important practical skills needed for a career in financial services. We are proud to be supporting the initiative and the development of the region’s next generation of talented investment professionals.”
