Guest Speaker: Fraser from Goldman Sachs
On Friday 31st January Fraser Holmes-Mackay, a UEA alumni, will be joining us to give a talk about his experience applying for and working as an Analyst at Goldman Sachs.
Fraser left UEA as a Master of Mathematics graduate in 2018 after studying a year abroad at Berkeley, and has since become an analyst at Goldman Sachs. As a Mathematics student, he had to compete against 1000’s of other graduate applicants whose degrees would typically be considered more focused for the analyst role. He is currently working to promote Goldman Sachs’ $500 million investment strategy to increase access to capital for women, Black, Latinx and other diverse entrepreneurs and investors, through “Launch with GS”.
This talk will provide an insight into what it is like to work for a leading global investment bank and will offer valuable application and career advice.
Fraser was involved in the Investment Society at UEA during his time at University, and we are excited to have him back again.

Amplify Trading Global Markets Simulation
On the 27th November between 1pm – 5pm, we will be hosting Amplify’s Global Market Simulation. We invite students interested in a career in global markets to engage with a state-of-the-art simulation that will rotate them through roles in market making, sales trading and execution trading.
As sale traders use their client relationship ability to facilitate client flow, market makers will be delivering prices and using the exchange and inter-dealers to unwind risk.
This is a unique way to really understand what happens on an investment bank trading floor. The event is designed to be engaging and fun, and suitable for any student who may have no prior financial trading experience.
You must have the UEAIS membership in order to attend this event.
