The Leeds University Union Trading and Investment Society (LUUTIS) was founded in 2010 with the purpose of bringing together like-minded students, developing their knowledge base and commercial awareness to create a platform to help secure a career in the financial services industry.
We take students on the journey from applying for insight weeks right through to securing a graduate job. Having consulted the industry, the clear consensus is that academic success shapes only part of the formula in creating successful candidates.
We endeavour to offer our members profound exposure to the highly competitive world of finance through invaluable first-hand experience gained through our industry insights, networking events, Virtual Fund, roundtable events as well as our own finance conferences.
Message from the Committee
Welcome to the Leeds University Union Trading and Investment Society
It is a great privilege for us to serve as the representatives of LUUTIS members this year.
It is our members that make LUUTIS what it is today, and as a whole, we are a diverse group of engaged and driven individuals from multiple backgrounds. Our members all share an interest in finance, and as a committee, we enjoy bringing this talented group of individuals together.
Building on the success of the previous year, we have developed our Investment banking Roundtable, with the aim of equipping our members with practical insight and knowledge remaining at the forefront of what we do. Additionally, we continue to collaborate with RBC Brewin Dolphin for our Wealth Management Challenge, which allows us to provide students with leading insights into the wealth management sector. We have also developed our Private Equity Challenge by collaborating with other leading universities, such as University of Manchester and University of Sheffield.
We recognise that ESG and sustainable finance is key to our future, which is why we continue to host conferences in areas such as Green Finance, as well as the Leeds Finance Summit.
Through continuous collaboration and growth, LUUTIS strives to serve our members and those around us in the most impactful way possible.
As we exit the COVID-19 crisis, it is our priority to ensure all of our members have the skills and resources neccessary to succeed in the world of finance. Thus, it is of the upmost importance that LUUTIS continues to develop and invest in our members, to ensure they can reach their potential.
