About London Investment Banking Week (LIBW)

GIBS annually arranges trips to London – called the London Investment Banking Week (LIBW). The LIBW is the main highlight of GIBS, and traditionally takes place every autumn in September.

London is a global financial hub, and home to some of the world’s premier investment banks. Fifteen selected students are given the opportunity to meet with investment banks at close range at their offices. This gives participants deep insights into the day-to-day activities of investment bankers, as well as an opportunity for networking and topic discussion about the recruitment process.

“GIBS provided me with invaluable insight into investment banking and a network full of aspiring young professionals. This network helped me to secure internships and a full time role. I would strongly encourage students interested in investment banking to get involved in GIBS!”

Jakob RadosInvestment Banking Analyst, Barclays
