BUY! BUY! BUY! BUY!

SELL! SELL! SELL! SELL!

Have you ever dreamed of being a Bond Trader?

Well this is not quite The Wolf of Wall Street but it promises to be lots of fun.

On the night, Bernard will cover the key economic principles of the bond market, so listen carefully. Then, as part of a team, formed on the night, you will manage a portfolio of shares, bonds and cash. Joined-up thinking and team work is essential for this. You will instruct “runners” of the positions you want to take – that's the buy/sell bit – in order to maximise gains/minimise losses. The team that makes the most money wins!

All this and 2 CPD hours – what's not to love!

Please note that this event is being held in number of locations and members can only claim CPD hours for attending one of the events.
