First Derivatives founder to receive honorary doctorate
First Derivatives sells software and consulting services to large banks to help them manage their risks and they provide services to over 91 different investment banks, exchanges, brokers and hedge funds.
Conlon, the founder and chief executive of First Derivatives will receive an honorary doctorate after he took First Derivatives, with a starting capital of just £5000, to become a leading international service in the capital markets industry.
Pro-vice-chancellor at Queen’s, Professor Ellen Douglas-Cowie, said: “Brian Conlon is an inspiration to the students of the Queen’s University Management School graduating here today. The meteoric rise and success of his business – which provides software services to capital markets in around the globe – is a shining example to follow.”
