First Year Analyst for Fixed Income and Derivatives Trading

Are you curious about why interest rates are as low as they are and find it interesting to understand central banks’ decisions? Would you like to utilise your quantitative and qualitative skills to thrive in a fast-paced environment? Perfect, please keep on reading!

You will join us in the Fixed Income & Derivatives trading team in Copenhagen, and we work with these questions on a daily basis to service our clients in the best possible way. We strive to be the best in the business and put great pride in being our clients’ counterparty of choice.

We trade a vast set of assets, spanning government bonds to interest rate options, with Danish and International clients. We put great value in collaboration, both with our clients but also with other divisions within the bank such as Research, Sales and Quant. Furthermore, our set up entitles us to work closely with our colleagues in Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki as well as London and New York.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to accelerate your career by working together with true market experts and get feedback and support by inspiring leaders. We have a supportive and including culture in which we help each other to reach our goals as a team.

Your responsibilities and the First Year Analyst programme
As a trader, you will be responsible for providing liquidity in one of the bank’s product areas to clients by consistently quoting buy and sell prices – thereby giving them access to the financial market place. You will be responsible for managing the associated market risk on a day-to-day basis by trading with the full range of counterparties, e.g. clients, brokers, exchanges and other banks.

You will work closely with relevant stakeholders to achieve advances in electronic trading and more sophisticated risk management tools. You will follow both local and global markets, developing tools to gauge opportunities and communicate your findings in order to provide our clients with first-class advice.

The First Year Analyst-programme consists of three learning modules and gives the opportunity for two short-term rotations. The programme offers a chance to build a useful network within the bank, and is an excellent way to get to know our organisation. In addition, the rotation opportunities enable you to broaden your knowledge and skill set, to give you a wider understanding of our business and add new perspectives to bring back to your original desk.

Who you are?
For you to prosper in our team you should have a keen interest in financial markets – eagerness and willingness to learn is more important than previous experience. To succeed in this role you will need the ability to think fast in order to make the right decisions and react quickly when new information hits the market therefor it is also key that you are robust and enjoy working in under pressure.

You will typically hold a degree master’s degree (or higher) in finance, economics, business, natural sciences or similar. Candidates with good coding abilities and a curiosity on finance will also be considered with interest. We believe that you have a strong drive, empathy in order to understand stakeholder’s perspectives and the ability to inspire and take initiative to develop both yourself but also our business from day one.
