Sales and Trading

Sales and Trading

Sales and trading is the backbone of an investment securities firm. Be it a stock brokerage, investment bank or a hedge fund, if a firm cannot sell its services, then it is unable to do business, and if it cannot trade well, then it becomes difficult to attract and retain clients. Located in the City of London, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) is one of the oldest exchanges in the world and can trace its history back to 1571. It is the second largest SE in Europe and seventh largest worldwide. The LSE had a combined market capitalisation of approximately £3.49tn and ‎2,483 listings (as of April 2018). As of May 2019, Europe’s largest stock exchange, Euronext had a total market capital of listed companies valued at approximately £3.27tn.

The Financial Markets Association, the UK chapter of ACI International, represents the interests of individuals engaged in professional trading, broking, operations, regulatory and compliance activities in the foreign exchange, money and derivatives markets within the United Kingdom. In Europe, The FIA European Principal Traders Association (FIA EPTA) represents more than 25 trading firms that trade their own capital in futures, options and equities markets worldwide. Employment of securities, commodities, and financial services sales agents is projected to grow four percent from 2018 to 2028, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

Our Lombard Street based consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations across the sales and trading jobs market throughout the UK and Europe.
