Traders are the heart and soul of the Investment Banking firm. That is why trading jobs come with the pressure, responsibility and compensation that makes other financial positions seem like second fiddle. Quantitative analysts work closely with traders to develop trading models based on Statistics and Computational Mathematics. The traders are the ones who execute the strategy and the magic happens in that execution.
Investment Banking trading jobs usually require experience working with various trading models, such as multi variant regression analysis and risk models. Many Investment Banking trading jobs call for a background in statistics or mathematics, and often the most successful firms hire only from the top colleges and universities. In the end, a great trading record will trump educational background.
