About the event


WHFS are proud to present you with a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact with a man who has seen the most extreme ups and downs of the entire financial industry.

Duncan Perry, current COO of SEO London, was on the board of advisors for Barclays and UBS before the 2008 financial market collapse (the subject of the movie The Big Short). He has interacted with managing directors who were directly responsible for the crash and was brought in to save several firms from bankruptcy during the crash.

He has had many unique experiences from advising on the acquisition of Roman Abramovich's (Russian oligarch and former owner of Chelsea FC) yacht to losing £9 billion in 3 days while overseeing Amaranth hedge fund – this is still one of the largest financial losses in history!

Last year, we had the privilege of learning about what it takes to succeed in the financial industry, be a good leader, team player and a quick thinker. He also shared many personal anecdotes of betrayal and insider criminal activity that took place during the financial crisis.

Currently, he is the COO of SEO London and will also be sharing with attendees tips on getting fast tracked on their applications. This is truly an event that cannot be missed and is undoubtedly an extremely high profile guest.

Places are limited so be sure to arrive to the event early to secure a seat.

This event is open to everyone so be sure to bring your friends!
