Careers for Women in Financial Markets
As part of our commitment to supporting women in this field, we offer a Women in Financial Markets employment opportunity as well as mentorship and a monetary bonus for recipients.
This initiative encourages skilled and talented women who are interested in a career in financial markets to continue their pursuit of either an under-graduate or post-graduate degree in Finance, Business, Commerce, Economics, Risk Management or Financial Engineering.
As women are completing their education, we offer the opportunity to put their in-class learnings to use and gain valuable on-the-job work experience. Having a mentor and becoming acquainted with our organization helps to provide women some insight on the skills needed to be successful in this fast paced industry.
