Financial Trading Event

About this event

SBE’s Inaugural Financial Trading Event will be run by Amplify Trading using their ‘Investment Bank Sales and Trading’ programme. 

The simulation has been designed to be engaging and fun and no prior financial knowledge is required. It is especially suitable for those of you interested in pursuing a career in Finance. I am particularly pleased that our very own SBE Economics graduate (and my former student) Eddie Donmez will be delivering it.

The cost of the full day event is £30, this includes a pizza lunch and refreshments.  The number of participants is restricted to 120 and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. 

The event will provide you with a unique opportunity to experience Amplify Trading’s state-of-the-art simulation, rotating through front-office roles in market making, sales trading, and hedge fund execution trading. You willget a feel for what actually happens on an investment bank trading floor and discover what roles may best suit you. 

Over the day your performance will be monitored and (on request) outstanding students highlighted to financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley.
