My experience with Substantive Research

During semester one of my masters degree, we had a course called “Financial Markets” where we learnt about the market for research in finance, and the growth of independent research providers. So when the Student Development Team offered us an opportunity to get involved with one of the independent research providers, I thought this would be a great chance to see how the things we learnt in semester one are applied in practice.

Frankfurt Trek

Our trip to Frankfurt was definitely a meaningful one. The delicious food we ate, the tasteful drink we drank, the great experience we had, the practical knowledge we learned and the friendly people we met in Frankfurt will all without doubt stay with us for a long time.

Socialising in Frankfurt

Participating in a trip such as the Frankfurt trek can benefit students in many ways. Following the 5 days spent in Germany, I considered the key highlights of this venture to be the material covered in the lectures, the quality of lecture delivery, the things we learnt on our visits to the European Central Bank and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the professional network which I grew.
