The India League and City Hindus Network hosted a joint event at the historical India Club. With over 80 City professionals, the evening is best summarised by one of the attendees, Ugan Pretheshan.

“What an evening! It was a great pleasure to be at a networking event last week hosted by the City Hindus Network and the India League. The evening was full of amazing food and hospitality at the India Club in London.

“It was the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and industry professionals from a variety of sectors, from banking to tech.

“As a student looking to break into investment banking and private wealth management, the event provided an ideal environment to learn from leading figures in the industry.

“Having been successfully trading for more than two years now, I relished the opportunity to speak with experienced professionals; who were all able to unfold a wealth of advice. Everyone that I spoke to was more than happy to help, and listen to my journey as a young trader.

“A special thank you to Alpesh Patel OBE for very helpful advice on university applications, trading and the importance of spirituality and identity. I look forward to coming along to future events and connecting with more great people.”
