Changes and restructure in the market drive new opportunities

As the post-financial crisis environment continues to sift into place, regulatory revisions are driving trading to be centrally cleared. E-commerce platforms across all asset classes are broadening. Liquidity is becoming an important management requirement. Leverage ratio requirements will make trading decisions more complex. This environment calls for senior bankers who can reinvent the trading structure, manage risk, drive more efficient trading execution with middle office and back office processing, and behave strategically. These bankers must be agile embody diverse and rare combinations of skills including creativity and innovation, and possess a high degree of integrity and commitment to excellence. As competition to provide greater efficiency while leveraging technology increases, selecting and developing the best must be an essential part of business strategy.
