FROM THE MASTER
I am delighted to announce the results of the 2020 WCIB Lombard Prize for students at University Business Schools. The winner is David Witts David Witts | LinkedIn from the University of Durham Business School and the Runner Up is Chloe Salehnejad Chloe Salehnejad | LinkedIn from University College London Institute of Finance and Technology. Many congratulations to both of them.
Since 2009 the WCIB Lombard Prize has been open to students who have won a WCIB prize at business schools for their academic work. In 2020 there were 10 entrants for the competition. The students had to submit an executive summary of their work or dissertation and give an oral presentation on two questions:
Question 1: What do you consider the long-term impact on the City of London due to Covid 19 and the lockdown? Who will be the winners and losers?
Question 2: The motto of the London Stock Exchange is “My word is my bond”. Is this applicable to the whole of the City of London and how is it reconciled with the post truth world?
We look forward to welcoming the winner and runner-up at one of our major City of London functions. We also wish everyone who took part successful careers in financial services.
