First Derivatives fund new trading room at Queen’s University

Newry based company First Derivatives has funded a new trading room at Queen’s University, Belfast. The trading room is set to show the reality of a career in financial services by emulating trading rooms in cities such as New York and London. The project is also supported by Invest Ni.

Chief Executive of First Derivatives, Brian Conlon said: “From our perspective this is an opportunity to collaborate with Queen’s on projects and develop courses in computational finance which align more closely with our company’s requirements.

He continued, “At First Derivatives we are recognised in global financial centres for the quality of our people. Taking in graduates who have practical experience of the trading floor as well accessing the facility will allow our in-house training to build upon this knowledge and provide more rounded consultants to market.”
