Wall Street comes to Gransha Road!
Mr Wayne Nickels, partner in Cunningham Coates Stockbrokers, visited BGS recently to give a presentation about careers in stockbroking and wealth management to the BGS Investment Club. He outlined his own career path, describing his uncertainty as a young man about which industry to work in, which seemed to resonate with a number of the Year 13 students. He went on to explain the various investment vehicles which he and his colleagues use, before fielding questions from the group.
Wayne offered insightful advice about how to manage the investment process as a team (even with “virtual” shares!) and shared some tips on how to use personal understanding of consumer markets to help research investment opportunities. The students found the talk most interesting and Wayne has offered his assistance with the ifs Investor Challenge for next year.
