“In speaking with the many young people at the Careers Expo, our focus was on showing them that a career in the financial services industry is not only dynamic and challenging, but that it builds a solid foundation that will benefit their long-term career. Having financial knowledge—whether it’s in capital structure, investment, or beyond—will be of value in virtually any role in any sector or industry,” he added.
