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 fourth event. Please join us for an exclusive Charity Problem Solving and Networking Event.

NGFF is a forum for junior professionals in the fund finance industry to share insights and to benefit from educational, networking and mentorship opportunities and to give back to local communities. 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 give back to the local community by solving a problem that the charity Career Ready is facing. The attendees will work in teams to come up with solutions and will present their ideas to the charity and a panel of senior fund finance professionals. Career Ready is a UK wide charity that links employers with schools to open up the world of work to young people.

The event will give NGFF members a chance to network with other attendees in a different setting, hone their presentation skills, apply their business knowledge to a problem a charity faces and gain exposure to a senior panel of fund finance professionals.

We are expecting 50-60 NGFF members to attend. 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. As NGFF members will be placed into teams for this event, we ask that you provide us with 48 hours’ notice if you can no longer attend.
