LXM OFFERS PAID INTERNSHIPS TO YOUNG GREEKS FOR SUMMER 2017

LXM is offering paid internships to bright, ambitious young Greeks and people of Greek origin for the summer of 2017, through its affiliation with the Libra Group Internship Programme. LXM is a joint venture between LXM’s management and the principals of international business group the Libra Group. The interns will have the unique opportunity to gain valuable experience working in an investment banking and advisory firm that serves institutional and corporate clients. Based in LXM’s London offices, they will be assigned a specialist consultant (mentor) and a friend (buddy) in all stages of practical training in the company. Working alongside experienced industry professionals, the trainees will also receive a salary and in addition to remuneration, LXM bears all travel costs and helps the candidates with visa procedures (where required). The Libra Internship Programme has already helped hundreds of students to gain confidence in a professional environment and create a network of contacts and mentors. To date, about 200 young Greeks or people of Greek origin have participated in the program. “Any economy wants to avoid a ‘brain drain’ and we are pleased to participate in this very worthwhile scheme,” comments Matthew Mavridoglou, LXM CEO. “By helping these young people to prepare for the modern workplace with a structured and comprehensive internship, we hope to see an opportunity for Greece in encouraging them to commit to jobs and skills in the country. At the gateway to Europe, Greece has a lot to offer. Allying that to the passion and enthusiasm of interns eager to enter the economy with experience can only be positive.” The program is aimed at undergraduates of all disciplines with excellent knowledge of English and an average grade greater than 7. The application deadline for the summer internship is 6th January 2017. The internship will take place from 12th June to 11th August 2017 For more information and to find out more about available positions and the application process please see: www.librainternship.com

LXM OPENS FOREIGN BROKER DEALER PLATFORM

LXM Group has launched a platform to distribute research produced by foreign broker dealers to its clients. The platform will provide LXM’s clients with access to on-the-ground local insight and knowledge for emerging and frontier markets whilst providing the security and support of transacting directly with LXM. The addition of this foreign broker dealer offering enhances LXM’s global reach and underlines the firm’s promise to constantly improve its service to clients. The platform provides a much-needed addition to the research space in a market which has recently been constricted by consolidation on the sell side. Heading the Foreign Dealer Platform is Harold Warren, who is also Global Head of Emerging Markets at LXM. Harold previously worked at Robert Fleming, Deutsche Bank and Uralsib and brings a wealth of experience in sales trading and management across emerging markets. The platform further allows a select group of foreign research providers who are highly regarded in their respective local jurisdictions to deliver their product to LXM’s clients, thereby providing the buy side with original and thoughtful research. It also benefits local research houses by enabling them to distribute research via LXM to a wider client base, previously subject to cost and infrastructure constraints. All content is quality controlled in house and LXM has built a team to ensure research and insight of the highest standard. Matthew Mavridoglou, co-founder and CEO of LXM Group said, “Over the past 3 years we have significantly developed our foreign broker partnerships thus further increasing our offering to our clients. We now have a broad network of brokers offering coverage in over 25 emerging and frontier markets”
