View from Citigroup

​The largest trading floor in Australia opened its doors to our Year 11 Economics students.

The private tour of the Citigroup trading floor in Sydney CBD was organised by the St Catherine's Foundation and current St Catherine’s parent, Mr Grant Eshuys.

Ms Thalia Prassas (Old Girl 2005) gave the girls an overview of her equities research role within Equity Capital Markets at Citigroup, tracing her career back to the lessons she learned at St Catherine's.

The girls listened to career advice, share market analysis, real estate tips and a fascinating overview on China and its effect on the Australian economy. This is an important topic in the girls’ Economics HSC curriculum and it provided an alternative perspective to the current reports surrounding the Chinese economy.

Finally we toured the trading floor with two of Citigroup's recent graduates and the visit was topped off with a delicious business lunch.
