ICMA Future Leaders






ICMA Future Leaders (IFL) initiative is designed to benefit the younger generation of finance professionals in ICMA’s membership, connecting them with the services and networking opportunities which can enhance their careers in debt capital markets.

IFL focuses on three core areas: Career Progression; Education; and Networking.
It is led by a steering committee of individuals in the early stages of their career, to provide the Association with guidance and input on how ICMA can communicate with the rising generation of finance professionals, as well as ideas on events and initiatives. The committee members currently represent the main ICMA regions in Europe and Asia Pacific.

The IFL also runs a number of supporting working groups, namely:

IFL FinTech Working Group
Chaired by IFL steering committee member Alejandro Martin Parrilla, Banco Santader, the group's aim is to foster increased engagement with the IFL community on ICMA’s FinTech work, and to provide a network to exchange ideas and present information on FinTech topics of interest relating to international debt capital markets. The group also supports ICMA's FinTech Advisory Committee, which provides guidance on the association's engagement on FinTech.

IFL Newsletter Working Group
The purpose of the newsletter working group is to provide guidance and input on the content of the quarterly IFL Newsletter.

IFL Education Working group
The group aims to help raise awareness of ICMA’s educational offering among young professionals within the membership and to provide feedback on the content and marketing of the various course programmes.
