Professional networking evening: finance


​More than 60 BGS Old Boys attended the successful finance professional networking evening hosted at Blue Sky Alternative Investments at Eagle Street on 8 March.

A panel of Old Boys who all work in management positions at Blue Sky, including managing director Robert Shand ’98 who co-hosted the event, shared their personal career journeys and imparted valuable experience to the audience mainly made up of young BGS alumni.


Blue Sky is a fund manager specialising in alternative investment funds in private equity, real estate, hedge fund strategies and real assets. Shand, at just 35, took over the company midway through last year after working at Blue Sky since 2011.

The event was at full capacity, with many young alumni embarking on careers in finance taking the opportunity to ask questions of their more experienced Old Boys.
