On 6 December, 25 students across several ICMA Centre programmes headed to London to visit the European headquarters of Bloomberg, one of the largest financial information service providers in the world.
The students were welcomed by Luis Jimenez from the Analytics team of Bloomberg and were given the opportunity for various refreshments at Bloomberg’s fruit bar. After a quick introduction to the companies history and structure, the students enjoyed a 45-minute tour through the building, in which they were introduced to the tasks of not only the various Bloomberg teams but also shown the Bloomberg TV room.
Concluding the tour through the building, the students received an introduction to the Bloomberg system, covering useful functions to carry out industry analysis or in-depth analysis of the fixed income market.
