Offering unique insight and access to the world of finance

As a Lancaster University Management School student, we offer you unique opportunities to access the world of Finance.

Working as a Finance Careers Coach, I have more than 25 years of Financial Services industry experience, working for leading global financial institutions including Investment Banks JP Morgan, Barclays and Morgan Stanley, principally in bond trading and sales capacities.

My third year Financial Markets module provides you with a practical and real-world approach to the subject, benefiting from real-life experience in the sector and exposure to the Investment Bank, Asset & Wealth Management, FinTech, Regulation and Financial Graduate Recruitment sectors.

I provide support to Lancaster students across the Financial Services industry, additionally including Credit Rating Agencies, Retail and Commercial Banking, Insurance and Financial planning, combining extensive financial experience with a passion for assisting students. Our successful mission has been to establish Lancaster as a Financial Services Career Hub.

To achieve this, I work on a one-to-one basis with students, whether you are in your final year looking beyond study or in your first and applying for Investment Banking and Asset Management Spring Weeks in your very first month of university. I am also happy to work with you before you arrive at Lancaster, as soon as your place is confirmed, to assist with early applications.

Paul McCormick is a Financial Careers Coach and Founder of Financial Market Careers focussed Opening City Doors.
