The school girls are set to take part in the National Investment Management Initiative.

Future Asset is a programme that informs girls in Scotland about careers in investment management, enthuses them about opportunities in the sector, and widens the talent pipeline whilst improving diversity in the industry.

Helen Bradley, programme manager, Future Asset, said: “We believe that being female should never be seen as a barrier to progressing in the career you choose.

"We’re delighted to launch this series, designed to encourage even more girls to look at the world of investment management so that they can see that this can be a rewarding world to explore.”
