Farshed was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh and grew up in Singapore, eventually completing national service there in the SCDF, Singapore’s fire and ambulance service. He also lived in Jakarta, but now calls London home. He is in Year 2 of the BSc Accounting and Finance program and has a keen interest in digital banking, fixed income trading, change management and technology consulting.
Previously, Farshed was External Affairs Officer at AIC20 and the professional experience of building relationships with external partners, as well as a healthy bit of speaker fanboying, were his motivations for taking up a larger role in the conference this year. He is extremely excited for what he expects will be the most impressive AIC yet, as we embrace a new virtual format.
Farshed completed a virtual Spring Insight Week at Morgan Stanley in their Institutional Securities Group this year and has accepted an offer to return in 2021 as a Summer Sales & Trading Analyst. In addition to his responsibilities at AIC and his upcoming internship, Farshed is Treasurer for the Consultancy Society at LSE and is currently working on a start-up in the dating space.
