Glasgow’s Top Financial Students Recognised

06 Jul 2011

Four top financial services graduates, one from each university in Glasgow, have been recognised by the IFSD awards programme, which highlights the wealth of talent graduating from Glasgow's four universities.

Awarded £500 each for achieving top marks in their final exams were Emma Guthrie who achieved a first class Honours degree in Finance from the University of Strathclyde, Kalsoom Jaffar, with a MSc in Banking, Finance and Risk Management from Glasgow Caledonian University, Alexis Grieve, who achieved a grade A in her Bachelor in Accountancy degree course at the University of the West of Scotland and, Bin Lui, who achieved five grade As in his Masters in International Finance at the University of Glasgow.

Jill Farrell, director of financial services, Scottish Enterprise said, "These awards recognise the great work being done by the universities in Glasgow and the relationships they have with the financial services sector to ensure a steady pipeline of well qualified graduates to work in the industry.  The awards also recognise the breadth and depth of talent graduating from these universities which is, we believe, very reassuring for existing financial services companies in the city and prospective inward investors."
