The loan markets' future resides with our young members so supporting them is an essential strategic goal. We are therefore delighted to be launching our inaugural ‘FutureLend’ conference to empower the next generation of lenders as they advance in their careers.

This unique event will bring together passionate and driven young professionals to further develop the skills and qualities which are important for working in the loan markets.

FutureLend Conference, 22 May 2024

‘FutureLend’ is a full-day interactive conference centred around the theme of career development. The agenda will cover a diverse range of topics, from building your personal brand to changing technology, providing the building blocks for you to create an extraordinary career in finance.

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, network with peers, as well as with senior industry professionals, as they speak about their own career paths and provide mentoring during the case study exercises.

Who is speaking?

As well as many senior professionals joining us as speakers, we are thrilled to announce that Iona Bain, award winning journalist, broadcaster, speaker and author, and Rugby World Cup winner Jason Robinson will also be sharing their expertise and experience.

Registration is by invitation only – delegates cannot register their interest directly through the LMA website.

Eligible delegates must be put forward by a participating organisation and receive a confirmation email from the LMA to be able to attend.

The participating organisations have been agreed by the LMA. For queries please contact Sophie Turner (

Junior professionals (members with two to four years’ market experience) working at participating banks, institutional investors and technology providers are eligible to be nominated.

The event, which includes lunch and drinks, is free of charge.

Delegates do not need to work in the loan markets, however they should be interested in lending.

Delegates do not need to prepare for FutureLend since the conference will not be focused on technical knowledge.

We will be launching the FutureLend LinkedIn group prior to the event so that delegates can connect with their peers and speakers.

Given the limited number of spaces at FutureLend, delegates must attend for the full day. If a delegate needs to cancel, they must give as much warning as possible.

The LMA will be holding a FutureLend conference in Europe later in 2024.
