To gain a better understanding of how the financial markets operate, the Year 13 NCEA Accounting class visited First New Zealand Capital in the Auckland CBD.

James Snell, Managing Director of Institutional Equities, and his team spent an hour with the students explaining the various divisions of Wealth Management, Investment Banking and Funds Management within FNZC.

This experience was particularly relevant to their recent internal assessment asking the students to advise their client on whether to invest in a listed NZ company. The highlight of the visit was observing James and his team swing into action in the dealing room as the Australian markets opened for the day. We would like to also thank our hosts for the pizzas provided while we had lunch in the board room before our return to the College.
