Programme

The Meet & Greet will start around 10 am. During this day we will offer you a variety of sessions that will improve your knowledge about trading, options and risk strategies. Even better, you will get the chance to experience the fast paced environment of trading by sitting behind the screens next to a professional trader in our dealing room. Enjoy lunch and dinner together with our traders and ask them all questions you may have. At the end of the day, we will hand out a prize for the best 'student trader' of the day. The Meet & Greet will be finished around 9 pm.

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, Econometrics, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering or similar.
