The asset management industry came together last week for the CASCAID gala dinner and auction, which raised nearly £150,000 on the night for Cancer Research UK.

CASCAID is a new initiative that brings friends and colleagues from around the asset management community together to raise money for Cancer Research UK in 2017.

Spearheaded by 100 individuals from around the industry, the campaign encompasses fundraising activities throughout the year, from abseiling to marathon-running, darts matches to cycle rides.

• Various work experience weeks went for £3,000
