London Hosts First Girls in Finance Program
December 1, 2023

On Thursday 30 November, Cadwalader’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (“WLI”) hosted the first Girls in Finance day in London.

The WLI welcomed 20 students from the Eden Girls’ School in collaboration with the East London Business Alliance to Cadwalader’s London offices, for an immersive morning learning about careers in finance and an array of finance concepts.

The morning started off with a vibrant panel discussion featuring some of the industry’s most brilliant woman in finance. Thank you to Iryna Chakanava (Ares Credit Group), April Gagnon (Barings), Ashley Danesi (Alta Advisers) and Francesca Giacoppo, Ana García Vivancos and Serafina Di Felice (Kartesia) for your time and insightful contributions.

Following the panel discussions, the girls had the opportunity to discuss all things wellness with the panellists and discover how they manage to maintain their health and relationships, all while juggling their demanding jobs. Finally, it was onto some investment 101 where the students were introduced to different asset classes and given the opportunity to play an investment simulation game – suffice to say, they walked away fully appreciating that diversification really is king!

The day concluded with a lunch and more valuable one on one time between the finance professionals and girls, a fantastic morning well spent learning from one another and being inspired.

Thanks to all involved for the tremendous effort! If you’re interested in getting involved next year, please do drop us a line Carla.pilcher@cwt.com or emina.hodzic@cwt.com.
