From education to employment


The London Academy of Trading (LAT), the UK’s first accredited trading academy, has won its third award this year with the “Most Outstanding Trading Courses Provider – 2022” from The Global 100.

With its global readership of more than 293,000, The Global 100 does not follow the usual process of many publishers. Instead, they use a very specific, comprehensive evaluation process. After the closure of the voting period, which involves a strict format of self-submission and third-party nomination, firms are shortlisted and then the winners are selected. For each category, a propriety method of analysis ranks winners based on their domestic and international work.

“This is a very challenging award to win, so we are delighted to have been chosen as the Most Outstanding Trading Courses Provider for 2022”, says Paddy Osborn, MD and Academic Dean of LAT. “Although it is flattering to be recognised for our achievements, our aim is simply to do everything in our power to help students to achieve their personal goals.”

Judges of the Global 100 looked at the scale, nature and strategic complexity of the work conducted by the participants. They also took into consideration whether participants were quick, within budget, used ground-breaking or innovative processes and focused strongly on the complexity and strategic significance of the work conducted.

LAT is very flexible, allowing students to study around other commitments, offering monthly intakes and options to study online, on campus or a blended combination of both. The faculty is composed of experienced traders and analysts from institutions including HSBC, Bank of America and Bloomberg who all trade live accounts and are available to students 10 hours a day to provide help and advice.

Earlier this year LAT continued its Women in Trading Scholarship programme, offering 30% scholarships to women for the fourth year running, and established a long-term partnership with ShareVision, the dynamic streaming platform for traders, economists and global financial news.
