Our History

London Finance Group was founded in 2006 by Christopher N. Westerlund with the help of Dan A. Bergman, Per O. Hjortsberg and Nariman Pishdar.

LFG was primarily founded to meet a growing interest for an international finance career among the students in Gothenburg. Another important aspect was the need for a student network between the different educational institutions in Gothenburg. Finally, there existed a need for an organisation where highly skilled and motivated students, with a variety of competencies and educational backgrounds, could meet and develop an extended alumni network.

Since then, we’ve carried out annual trips to top-tier investment banks in London and Stockholm, facilitated new connections into the world of finance, and springboarded the careers of hundreds of motivated Gothenburg students.
