Funds Academy

Seminar Series

The Funds Academy seminar sessions is a series of talks aimed at anyone working in the funds industry who wish to have the opportunity to get a greater insight into a broad range of topics and meet with likeminded peers. The talks are open to everyone; there is no cost, but you will need to register in advance. Once you have registered, you will be sent a link to the seminar prior to the event.

Initially, the seminars will take place virtually. The typical format is that each seminar will take about 50 minutes with 2 speakers per seminar. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers at the end of each speaker.

The topic areas have been chosen to have wide appeal but if there are any areas that you would like us to include in the schedule please let us know (our contact details are in the ‘Contact Us’ section of the website).

We also hope to have an in-person event later in the year should circumstances permit, please check back for any updates.

We collect only required information and will tell you why we are gathering that information in each form. This information is not shared with any third party.
