2018 Educlass Series: Deloitte Blockchain Workshop

The EduClass series is at the forefront of what the SMF seeks to represent. Having been in place since the inception of the Fund the series has greatly expanded since then. They offer the opportunity for our Student Research Analysts to gain a basis in their knowledge of equity investing. The EduClass series is run in conjunction with a range of our sponsors and external speakers each academic year.

Deloitte has earned its spot in the ‘Big Four’, leading the field in audit, consulting, financial advisory, risk management, and tax. This event shows how quickly they are growing and starting much more exciting ventures.

Join us as we go to visit Deloitte’s Blockchain Lab where you will find out more about the inner workings of the Lab and will have the chance to chat with their developers and designers while enjoying pizza and beer.

The team will focus on developing strategic blockchain capabilities and proof-of-concepts into functioning prototypes to create ‘ready to integrate’ solutions for financial services clients. It is already achieving success in this regard, having worked with Bank of Ireland to complete a joint proof-of-concept trial which combines the technology with the bank’s existing systems to provide next generation client experience and regulatory oversight at a lower cost.

This is an excellent opportunity to get to know Deloitte’s company culture, and a fantastic way to network, especially if you are applying for an internship with them.
