Conor Campbell: “The FinTrU Financial Services Academy was a great way to integrate into FinTrU. Starting at the same time as 19 other people really took away some of the nerves that I had prior to joining. The training provided was a great way to gain some knowledge and insight into what a working day in FinTrU really entailed.”
