5. Manifesto/plans for the first preference position only

In my opinion, the main function of the Research division is to provide the members of our society with
financial knowledge that is needed to facilitate the organisation of the events and preparing for their
interviews. I believe that our division has done an excellent job in producing the high-quality Analyst
magazine. However, I feel that the research division has great potential to expand ranges of events and
create more influence in our school.
What I will continue to do:

Maintain the high quality of our flagship magazine-The Analyst.

Provide newsletters to summarise the events held the Finance society to give students who are not
able to attend the events a quick overview of the events.

What I hope to bring to the division:

Introducing a series of industry specific knowledge-based workshop which aims to equip students with
the relevant knowledge for their spring and summer internship interviews.
Providing research and article writing training for the research division committee members to push
the Analyst to a higher standard.
Organising presentations on less-represented fields such as quantitative research in S&T and the life
as a research associate in asset managements.
Establishing an interview question base for our committee members and provide the financial
knowledge which may be used to answer the technical questions.

Working with other divisions, most probably the special project divisions to hold a London-wide
financial knowledge and case presentation competition to increase the publicity of our society and to
enhance the CVs of the participants

Working with the marketing division to establish a section on our website which contains categorised
basic financial knowledge base for all society members.
I believe the above plan have great potential to increase the publicity of the research division as well as
help our society to attract more memberships and sponsorships.
