Your profile

Screen Trader
Are you competitive and a fast decision maker under pressure? As a trader your role is to price and trade financial options while managing a complex portfolio of financial instruments. 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. 

Wholesale Trading
As a Wholesale Trader you will be responsible for order flow in the professional market deriving from the various exchanges we trade on. Other than our screen traders, who trade directly on the exchange, you will trade directly and indirectly with hedge funds, pension funds, institutional investors and big banks, often through intermediates such as brokers.
Ideally, your study should relate to analytics, such as Finance, Economics, Econometrics, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering or similar.
