A student at East Norfolk Sixth Form College has won a prestigious national finance competition.

Lindell Brown beat off competition from over 220 hopefuls who entered the Financial Times competition to find the best young personal finance writers in Britain. Lindell was named amongst the three overall winners who were each awarded £150 prize money.

The contest was organised in partnership with the London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF)

Lindell’s article, ‘Personal data, the new gold mine for corporations?’ was the winning entry in the 18 and over category. He is studying business, finance and economics at the College and is hopeful that he will secure an internship with the Financial Times after his studies at EN.

Lindell said: “It’s great to receive such enlightening news. It really sets me up for a positive outlook in life and I really hope that, once I’ve finished my third year, I can go on to work alongside the Financial Times and have a successful career in the Finance and Business sector. All courtesy of East Norfolk, of course!”

Teacher of Business and Finance, Deborah Dyer said, “Lindell is a bright young man with a keen interest in the finance sector and, as evident in the competition, a flair for communication. Definitely one to watch to see where this experience of his own minor 'gold rush' takes him.
