Fettes was delighted to welcome Simon Brewer, CEO of Vantage Investment Advisory Ltd, Senior Advisor to Rothchild & Co and the founder of the MoneyMaze Podcast (having previously also worked for both Citibank and Morgan Stanley) to talk to our 5th & 6th Form students.
Delivering a fascinating talk titled Bear Markets – Reflections and Realities, he offered our students a great insight into the history of financial markets and how they have responded to a huge array of historical events from the cancellation of Operation Sea Lion to Pearl Harbour.
Simon went on to discuss the impact of monetary policy on financial markets which tied in superbly with what the Lower Sixth A-level students have been studying in class. He finished with time for Q&A, students came to the front of the auditorium and spoke directly into the camera through Zoom as they posed their questions ranging from the role of crypto currencies to advice on how to pursue a career in banking.
A huge thank you to Simon for a superb evening, we hope to welcome Simon in person next year!
