London Academy of Trading offers 30% scholarships to women applicants in honour of International Women’s Day this month
The award-winning London Academy of Trading (LAT), the UK's first accredited trading academy, is again offering 30% scholarships to women for the fourth year running with its Women in Trading Scholarship.
Covering the entire month of March, which includes International Women’s Day on the 8th all women interested in applying who can demonstrate leadership potential in a global business environment, exceptional academic merits and an established track record of excellence in their chosen career will be considered for the LAT scholarship.
“I think the under representation of women in the investment industry has been well known for a while,” says Paddy Osborn MD and Academic Dean of LAT. “In 2018, only 12-15% of all training roles in the UK were filled by women according to Investment Trends, a global research firm, in its 2018 UK Online Investing Report. In 2021, however, Fidelity saw a 43% increase in women retail traders.”
“Currently, only 20% of LAT’s students are women and we are very keen to see far more women in the industry and this is why we have our scholarship.”
Potential candidates for the scholarship will be considered on their desire to learn how to trade, their personal goals and how it will affect their career. Recipients of the LAT award will be expected to act as ambassadors for the brand and assist with marketing efforts once awarded.
Elsewhere, LAT established a long-term partnership in January with ShareVision, the dynamic streaming platform for traders, economists and global finance. This new partnership kicked-off with the launch of an exclusive video collaboration, “Getting Started in Retail Trading” which consisted of five short episodes.
