Financial Traders can regularly make a significant amount of money for their employers. Trading is one of the most coveted jobs in the financial markets. A good Trader can make tens of millions of pounds for their company every year and take home vast bonuses.
The area of financial trading covers a wide range of job roles. A Proprietary Trader buys and sells financial products on behalf of the bank that employs them, whilst a Flow Trader executes trades on behalf of their bank’s clients. A Sales Trader acts as a mediator between the client and the people who are responsible for actually executing the trades.
Other ‘players’ in the market are Retail Investors. These are individual investors who buy and sell securities for their personal account, and not for another company or organisation. They are also known as an “individual investor” or “small investor”.
