What you'll do

We don’t hire trading clerks; we hire traders.

A trader works in a highly competitive and fast changing environment. You must be able to continuously price and trade financial options while managing a complex portfolio of financial instruments. This means you will also develop a strong understanding of risk and position management. Furthermore you are expected to take initiative in improving pricing models and show innovation with new trading strategies in order to seize any opportunity that should arise in the market. Finally, you need to be dedicated to constantly improve your market knowledge and develop your personal skills.

So in short, as a Trader you will:

  • Price and trade financial options;
  • Build and maintain positions in derivatives and equities;
  • Analyse the risk of your position;
  • Do research to improve models and trading methods;
  • Constantly search for knowledge and new theories.

After a three-month intensive training program involving classroom work, trading desk simulation exercises and live market trading— with real money—you will start trading at your own desk. We believe hands-on experience is the best way to learn and that is exactly what we provide.
