FinTrU Trading Room
Since 2017, FinTrU has generously sponsored our Trading Room. The FinTrU Trading Room, which replicates New York and London trading environments, provides students with access to 12 Bloomberg terminals, trading simulations and other financial software.
The FinTrU Trading Room is embedded into taught programmes allowing students to relate real world news and market activity to economic and financial theory. The facility is also vital for supporting extra-curricular activities such as the CFA Research Challenge and Queen’s Student Managed Fund.
Queen's Management School is delighted to have an established and multi-faceted partnership with FinTrU. Founded in December 2013, FinTrU is a multi-award winning Financial Services company that is committed to giving local talent the opportunity to work on the global stage with the largest International Investment Banks. Over the past couple of years, FinTrU has won accolades such as ‘Employer of the Year’, ‘Fast Growth Business of the Year’, ‘Best Place to Work’ and the Northern Ireland ‘Company of the Year’.
With over 1,000 employees across Belfast, Derry/Londonderry, London, Dublin, Maastricht and New York, FinTrU is a major employer in the Financial Services industry and actively recruits our graduates at Queen’s recruitment events.

Our students join FinTrU’s staff at one of its two Belfast city centre offices, located in The Gasworks and Pakenham Street, or in Carlisle House in Derry/Londonderry. While on placement, our students work with FinTrU clients to find solutions to help them meet with their regulations in areas such as; Legal, Risk, Compliance, KYC, Operations and Consultancy. FinTrU’s clients are all Tier 1 Investment Banks based in London, New York, Tokyo, Frankfurt and Paris. Successful completion of the FinTrU Placement Programme presents our graduates with the chance to join the company at Analyst 2 level upon graduation.
