Mission Statement:

Next Gen’s mission is to establish a forum for the exclusive benefit of junior, working professionals in the fund finance industry ranging from entry level positions to Vice Presidents and Senior Associates. This collective of bankers, private market professionals, lawyers and others related to the fund finance industry, will gather to share market insights and benefit from educational, networking, and mentorship opportunities in an engaging atmosphere.

Next Gen, established in 2018, will continue to host events in London and New York City. Events will include educational seminars, networking socials, and industry panels, which will be collectively aimed at achieving Next Gen’s goal of developing the junior professionals to be future leaders of the industry.

The European Chapter of the Next Generation in Fund Finance (“NGFF”) is pleased to host its third event. Please join us for an exclusive Speed Mentoring Event in connection with the FFA European Fund Finance Symposium. 

NGFF is a forum for junior professionals in the fund finance industry to share insights and to benefit from educational, networking and mentorship opportunities within the field. It is open to all junior professionals currently engaged in or looking to become involved in the industry.

The event will be an opportunity for NGFF members to take part in an interactive and informal speed mentoring evening, gaining insight from senior members of the Fund Finance Industry.

The evening will give NGFF members a chance to gain exposure to senior lawyers, bankers, and fund managers, to understand the mentors’ journey in the industry and to be able to ask any burning questions they may have.

There will also be an opportunity for NGFF members to build their network with peers from across the industry over drinks and canapés.

We are expecting 20-25 senior members and 40-50 NGFF members.

As this is an exclusive event, places will be limited and allocated on a first come first serve basis with a limited number of places per institution.
