Tomasz,

Its not a secret. Arvind was asking about my career switch. I mean how did I manage to move into Financial domain from Telecom. Also asking some suggestion like best way to gain some knowledge etc. As far as Cass, its a good school and also expensive. It also requires attending evening and weekend classes. So, I dropped that idea and spent some more time in analysing other options. One of my collegues suggested me CFA course from CFA institute( formerly known as AIMR ). I found its good one. Its a not a replacement for MBA but gives an option to enhance knowledge in investment banking area. Please have a look at www.cfainstitute.org if you want to know more about this. Please let me know if you have any questions and will try to answer as much as I can.

Cheers,
Sridhar.

G'day all,

I have been working in tier1 investment bank in London in IR derivatives area for 4yrs. I have good(if not some) knowledge in business side of IR derivatives. Now I am planning to invest some money & time in doing part-time MSc(2yrs) in Mathematical Trading & Finance to build on my skills and knowledge. I saw this course in Cass business school in London.

I would like to know from you

-- Is there any value to this type of courses(part-time)?

-- Will it add any value to my CV in future?

Thank you,
Sridhar.

Front office is the environment where trade entry, pricing and risk calculation happens. Back Office is the environment where settlements, payments, confirmations, accounting etc happens.

Kashif,

I have been working on C++( I worked on java 3yrs back ). So, I dont have much info abt java related technoligies used in IBs. When I look around people( the place where I'm working ) use mostly Weblogic, JBuilder, CVS( or Clearcase), Ant, Tomcat etc.

If you want I will throw some light into this and update the same.

Kashif,

I misread your post. Sorry abt that.

Investment banks(atleast where I am working) looking for below qualities

-- Able to work under pressure
-- Learn business knowledge as quickly as possible

I have seen banks recruiting people even though they dont have prior exp in financial domain.

I have been working in investment bank in London for more than 2 1/2 yrs. I have not seen any body getting 90K pounds with 2 to 3 yrs exp. I have seen people getting 65-70K with 5 to 6 yrs exp in financial domain.

Dont invest all your money in equity market. Invest some thing in bond market so that if share market falls, you can sell your bonds at higher price and reduce the loss.

Asit,

Yes they worked for few years on the applications supporting the business before moving into their new role.

If you work on applications that are supporting particular business for few yrs, you will learn some % of domain knowledge. Its not that much hard to learn business concepts if you show interest and put some extra effort. Infact its easy b.coz your day to day activity involves talking to business analysts, ops people, experienced collegues, PL/PMs( who are in the business for several years) and some times with the traders if your role also involves supporting the application.

Hi,

Stock markets is just one area but there are so many other areas where trading happens like bond markets, money markets( T-bills etc), FX, derivatives( interest rate, credit, equity, commodity). I dont know how active the derivatives and FX markets in India at present. I'm sure they will pickup in few years time.

The people which I was refering earlier worked as developers initially and acquired good business knowledge and moved into trading desk when they got an opportunity. They are doing pretty well in that role.

Just stick to one business area, learn as much as possible and move into business role when you get an opportunity.
