    Hi. I'm looking to work in trading at a bank or in research or investment management when I'm older. Right now, I have offers from a target to study economics.

    I was wondering about where I should look at getting work experience in trading/research/investment management from? I didn't know about the insight days at banks so didn't do them. Are there still any small trading or investment firms in London that might accept Year 13s? Even if it's just menial work, I'll do it if I can shadow someone lol.
