Student Vacation Programme 2021
For several years now, Foord has conducted a week-long vacation programme before the start of the academic year for previously disadvantaged undergraduates with a passion for investments. The initiative is the brainchild of Foord’s Head of Equity, PRAVARSHAN MURUGASEN, who selects the candidates and runs the course.
The programme offers students an exciting opportunity to engage with and learn from the Foord investment team and take part in an investment case study. Students also meet with staff from other areas of the business to appreciate the diverse skills needed to achieve success in this industry.

"This year’s Foord Vacation Programme was conducted under strict COVID-19 protocols. The students were of a high calibre and they impressed me with their diligence and insightful questions." — PRAVARSHAN MURUGASEN, HEAD OF EQUITY
