Financial Horizons Conference at UCSD on Saturday, March 11th

Hi Everyone,

On behalf of the University of California, San Diego’s Undergraduate Investment Society, we would like to formally invite all UCSD business minor students to attend this year’s Financial Horizons Conference. The Financial Horizons Conference is UC San Diego’s largest and most reputable business conference, presented annually by UIS. Admission is free and open to any individuals or organizations with interest in attending.

Last year, the Conference introduced countless prestigious and thought-leading speakers to attendees, spanning BlackRock® to Deloitte Consulting. This year, UIS is excited to host our two Keynotes: Joseph Edelman, the Founder, Chief Executive Officer, and Portfolio Manager of Perceptive Advisors, as well as Ashvin Bachireddy, the Co-Founder and General Partner of Geodesic Capital. In addition to our Keynotes’ speeches, we will also be hosting breakout panels that cover Investment Banking, Venture Capital/Private Equity/Entrepreneurship, Executive Women, Consulting, and Investment Management with panelists from some of the well-known firms in the industry which include, but are not limited to, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Sequoia Capital, Ernst & Young, PwC, and Verizon Wireline.

We encourage all students who are interested in pursuing a career in business or finance to join us on Saturday, March 11th. The Financial Horizons Conference serves as an intersection point between undergraduates across Southern California and some of the best and brightest minds in business and finance. This annual Conference provides a unique opportunity to undergraduate communities as it allows students to network with professionals from fields that seldom visit local campuses. We hope that you will consider spending the day with us getting to better know the business community at UC San Diego as well as having a chance to meet and listen to the Conference’s thought-provoking speakers in what promises to be another eventful and insightful Financial Horizons Conference.
