Talent celebrated at Birmingham Stock Exchange Association dinner
An up and coming wealth manager and six Aston University undergraduates were honoured at last night’s annual Birmingham Stock Exchange Association dinner.
Hosted at the prestigious Council House in Birmingham, Zach Daniels, of AFH Private Wealth was presented with the Chairman’s trophy in front of more than 150 friends and colleagues from Birmingham’s financial services sector. Zach is only 21years old and has already passed his Level 6 Private Client Investment Advice and Management qualification.
In addition, the Association celebrated the achievements of the six students from Aston University who are benefitting from the Birmingham Stock Exchange’s Benevolent Fund Bursary programme.
Linsey Ruddell, Chairman, (and first ever female chairman of the association in its 174 year history), said:
“This year I am delighted that we are celebrating young people’s careers and achievements. In retaining and attracting students to Birmingham, firms have to compete with the glitz and glamour of London and all that it has to offer.
However, I genuinely believe that the attractions of Birmingham are ever increasing. We have great financial firms to work for and the financial community is thriving.
We have a lot to offer and increasingly, we are becoming a real alternative to London both in terms of the sector but also in terms of Birmingham being a great place to live given the huge regeneration and inward investment Birmingham has received over recent years.”
Last year the dinner raised more than £2000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, this year’s chosen charity is Good Hope Hospital’s Breast Care Charity.
