Event Overview

ICMA’s Future Leaders (IFL) has gone from strength to strength since its launch two years ago with an ever increasing number of young professionals among the ICMA membership becoming more involved in its activities. The IFL’s contributions to ICMA’s outreach to the young generation has also been significant with the launch of the ICMA app, the guide for young professionals in the international capital market (“Get Involved”) and the ICMA mentoring platform. A series of networking and career progression events are run throughout the year by the IFL in major financial centres across Europe.

ICMA members were invited to an evening networking reception on Thursday 25 January 2018, as we launched the IFL initiative in Spain. The evening featured a keynote speech from ICMA Board member, Juan Blasco. Juan, the Global Head of Syndicate at Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A. (BBVA), spoke about his own experiences within the capital market and provided tips for navigating the industry towards a successful career.
