NEW: Future Leaders Workshop


Recognising & Developing Talent

In partnership with AFME for this year’s Global ABS, the workshop day is geared towards those in the fixed income markets looking to advance in their careers and network with like-minded, and like-positioned peers, as a mix of those self-identifying as looking to take the next step in their career, and those that have been identified by their seniors as the ‘next generation’ of leaders in the capital markets. 

The initiative and workshop will look to provide Future Leader participants with critical insights from industry legends through retrospectives on their careers, as well as equip them with the skills and knowledge of how to build successful and sustainable careers through soft skill development across; leadership and management, mentor/mentee-ship, personal branding, work/life balance and more. 



The workshop is FREE to attend, however places are limited to 120 participants, and we ask that all delegates registered to the workshop attend the whole days sessions as to not take up the place of another wishing to take part.
