Community partners

We're proud to partner with a range of organisations and charities to help our communities. 

Invest for Success

We help Arrival Education to run Invest for Success, an innovative six-month programme for students wanting to succeed in the financial sector. Our London, Leeds and Liverpool staff help students learn the principles of trading through a simulated stock portfolio game. In doing so, we're working to widen access to corporate career opportunities for young people from underrepresented backgrounds.
