Sales Trading Research Quantitative Analytics Trade Capture Team (TCT)
  • Sales

    Key to the growth of our clients’ businesses – and our own – our sales teams deliver well-informed, up-to-the-minute advice, and an around-the-clock service. As a Salesperson, you’ll work with high-profile institutional clients. These are organisations that have significant capital to invest – pension funds, insurance companies, central banks and the like. It’ll be your job to match our products and services to their needs. It means often thinking beyond the obvious, always acting responsibly and partnering with colleagues from across the bank. A real people person, you’ll have a flair for relationships as well as a talent for analysis and numbers.

  • Trading

    Our Traders buy, sell and trade a wide range of products. They work across a variety of markets. They’re highly focused. And they need to think on their feet.

    Here we trade products that range from credit to commodities (goods like grain, gold, beef and oil), foreign currency to equities (stocks). Whatever area you work in, you’ll know which investments offer the best return, making informed decisions that build your clients’ trust as well as the strength of their portfolios. It’s fast-paced and demanding, but also team-driven. So expect to collaborate with colleagues in Sales and enjoy loads of support while using your analytical skills to the full.

  • Research

    Sector specialists. An ideas factory.. Our Research team digs deeper into what’s driving the world’s financial markets and economies. The ability to articulate and present succinct, accurate and insightful messages is crucial here. You’ll learn to react swiftly to market movements, cutting through the noise to provide instant yet thorough analysis. And you’ll spend time thinking analytically on sector and global trends to generate powerful investment ideas. All while building relationships with some of the Bank’s most important clients. Whether you join us in Equity Research, Credit Research or Economics and Market Strategy Research, your work will empower our clients and our business.

  • Quantitative Analytics

    QA gives us the innovative tools and models we need to work more accurately and effectively. It’s an invigorating environment. And its breakthroughs keep us at the forefront of our industry. You’ll learn how to provide modelling, analytics development and expert advice across trading and our Risk and Treasury functions. And, alongside other teams, you’ll help deliver solutions for risk management, changes in markets structure, capital utilisation, derivatives pricing and strategic technological advancements. If you’re logical, love solving problems, enjoy teamwork and have strong maths and programming skills (C++, Python or R), you’ll soon make an impact. 

  • Trade Capture Team (TCT)

    TCT supports our Markets business by capturing trade information quickly and accurately. And with colleagues across five locations generating x trades daily, that’s no mean feat. TCT captures and accepts the terms of any trades into our systems that will help us understand the Bank’s risk profile. Our teams are:

    • Trade capture assistance
    • Complex trade capture
    • Trade Allocation Processing
    • Trade amendments
    • Risk production and processing
    • Ad-hoc risk scenario production
    • Infrastructure build and testing.
  • Client Strategy
    Client Strategy is a dedicated team within Distribution, the sales organisation within Markets. Each product cluster has its own Client Strategy effort but they each partner closely to deliver a robust and coordinated holistic client strategy across asset classes, ensuring that we make the best use of our resources to deliver value for clients and maximise returns.
