SIMANextGEN is an association established as an off shoot from SIMA for under 40s working in the Financial Services and Securities Industries.

Our vision is to bring together a group of like-minded individuals across the Industry to share best practice and network with peers. We aim to offer events throughout the year covering 3 main topics:

  • Industry Insight
  • Thought Leadership
  • Personal Development

 

Our aim will be to cover these 3 topics each quarter. All events will be facilitated by a key speaker and attendance at meetings is certified for CPD. The events will then be followed by networking opportunities allowing you to meet your industry peers.

Like SIMA, SIMANextGEN is a leading and totally independent forum for financial service professionals and is supported by many of the City's leading Auditors, Law firms, Banks, Exchanges and regulated firms.

We looking forward to welcoming Gary Wright as the guest speaker at the November SIMA NextGEN meeting.

He has worked as head of European operations at Salomon’s, Robert Fleming and Panmure Gordon before becoming a consultant to software developments establishing BISS Research as a company to benchmark systems performance in financial markets.
