Justin Urquhart Stewart visits the University

As the Marketing Director and Co-founder of Seven Investment Management, Justin is a regular commentator on financial market events and developments, and has appeared on BBC1’s Business Breakfast, BBC Radio 5live, BBC2’s Wake up to Money and Working Lunch on BBC Radio 4. He also attends corporate events as a guest speaker on a wide range of topics and was recently invited to open the Private Investor Show.

Justin’s first lecture was to the Investment Management students on Thursday 7 February and he returned the following week on Wednesday 13 February to speak to the Investment Analysis students.

Dr Ian Brooks, Executive Dean of Northampton Business School, commented: “It was very gracious of Justin to give his time so freely and engage so many students, sharing with them cutting edge insights which they fully appreciated. His support for our BSc (Hons) in Banking and Financial Planning is much appreciated as is the input we have received from so many senior professionals. That, together with the Chartered Institute of Insurers approval, will ensure that this industry-focused degree programme will provide both relevance and challenge to our students and ensure excellent job prospects when they graduate.”

The University of Northampton now offers a BSc (Hons) in Banking and Financial Planning, which is fully supported by Justin. The course has been developed in collaboration with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and is full time over three or four years; offering an ideal preparation for those seeking a career in banking, wealth management and financial planning.
