Industry Sharing Series : JP Morgan Chase & Co
As part of the Industry Sharing Series, the Faculty of Science invited JP Morgan Chase & Co, an American multinational banking and financial services company, for an interactive sharing session with staff and students on 12 October 2015. The theme of the session was “Building a Career through Challenging Times”.
Mr Neil NEWBY, Executive Director and Regional Head, Asia Derivatives Clearing Operations and Ms Tancy TAN, Executive Director and Senior Product Manager, JP Morgan Markets shared their experiences during good and difficult times in the financial sector. They spoke about business expansion, regulatory reforms, financial crises as well as mergers and acquisitions. They also provided insights on building a career in the financial services industry and staying ahead in this competitive sector.
After the sharing and Q&A session, participants were invited to a networking dinner with Mr Newby and Ms Tan.
The session was well-received. More than 60 staff and students attended.
The Industry Sharing Series, which was launched in March this year, is a platform for thought leaders from the public and private sector, as well as diverse industries, to provide insights into trends, challenges and opportunities in their respective fields. These sessions provide valuable opportunities for students to engage industry players as part of their professional development to prepare them for the workplace. The sessions also serve as a networking platform to seed high-value partnerships with participating organisations.
