Ross MacDonald, 21, from Melrose, has been recognised by Glasgow’s International Financial Services District (IFSD) for achieving a first class honours degree in finance at the University of Strathclyde.

At an awards ceremony for the IFSD Glasgow Student Awards 2014, Ross was one of seven students, representing each university and college in Glasgow, to be presented with a certificate and £250 to mark their achievements.

Ross wants to work in security analysis and currently plans to return to university to undertake a masters in finance.

The awards programme was established by the IFSD Partnership to highlight the wealth of talented graduates emerging from Glasgow’s universities and colleges, prepared for careers in financial services.

Presenting the award to Ross on behalf of the IFSD, Elaine Hovey, senior manager, said: “Many congratulations to Ross on his achievement.

“The IFSD Student Awards underline the breadth and depth of talent graduating from these universities and colleges which is, we believe, very reassuring for existing financial services companies in the city and prospective inward investors.”
