Jonathan is joining 40 other Year 11 students from across NSW who have demonstrated an interest in finance and have been chosen to attend the prestigious UBS Finance Academy, held in Sydney next week.  

The UBS Finance Academy have an integral commitment to nurture Australia’s future talent.  They have provided educational guidance and assistance to more than 6,400 school students to date.  

During the week long fully subsided residential course, Jonathan will gain a first-hand insight into financial markets, the operations of a bank and the many career paths open to him and the other students, some of which they previously wouldn’t have known existed.  He will meet key industry players, as well as gain a practical and working knowledge of financial markets via workshops, enjoy ‘a day in the life of’ presentations, follow mock case studies and have a visit to UBS’s trading floor.  

Jonathan said “I’m really excited about this opportunity to gain a rare insight into the world of finance.  Hopefully this experience will highlight to me some areas I may consider investigating further as I decide my future career path in the finance world.  I’m sure it will help guide me with my subject choices for my final year at St Augustine’s College in 2019.  I thank Mr Byrne and Mr Laforest for supporting me in my application to the UBS Finance Academy and look forward to my educational week with them.”
