LUCY: What can Leeds students expect from Leeds Finsights and the new newsletter?
LYDIA: The newsletter covers 8 core categories: technology, media and telecommunications; guest, interview and industry insight; equities, currencies and foreign exchange; market roundups; positive news; deals and business case studies; politics and policy; and developing, emerging and developed country analysis – but we’re not limited to these areas.
Some of our recent stories have covered Tesla, the Russian rouble and even Ocado, demonstrating just how wide-ranging our coverage is.
It sounds like a lot, but the articles are all written in an accessible and understandable format by our talented student Financial Analysts. So, don’t worry, where financial news can often seem overwhelming, we aim instead to simply educate and enhance students’ understanding!
LUCY: Lastly, how can students access your content and get involved?
LYDIA: Make sure to visit our website – here you can not only subscribe to the newsletter for bi-weekly financial, business and economic briefings, but also read exclusive articles published only to the website!
On our Instagram page, we also post our top daily news picks, and graphics debunking financial jargon, so students can easily access all the finance and business updates they need, straight to their social media feeds. However, Leeds Finsights is also active on Facebook and LinkedIn.
Although our initial recruitment phase has ended, we may be looking for new management board members, editors, as well as more analysts in the future, so keep an eye out, as there’s exciting things ahead!
