Commenting on the University Tour, Anton Kreil, Managing Partner of the Institute of Trading and Portfolio Management, stated: "We are very pleased to be speaking at 15 universities in October and November across the U.K. and mainland Europe. I remember being at university myself and it is still the case that all students ever seem to get are corporates arriving at their universities and employees of those corporates pitching them the benefits of applying and working for their company.
"They never tell you the realities of working for them, because they are towing the company line and pushing a corporate PR message. We are going to change that and provide the students with ALL of the information, both good and bad in an objective environment. This will enable them to make more informed decisions when considering a career in Trading, Portfolio Management and Banking."
