ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Traders Development Program is designed to turn today’s talent into tomorrow’s traders. It will help you develop the skills and gain the experience required to build a successful trading career with us.
Typically, the TDP takes 2-3 years to complete but no two trainees follow the same route. You’ll find that the TDP is highly individualized and dynamic, tailored to your aptitude and experience, as well as the requirements of the trading desk you’re working on.
With the ongoing support of an experienced, dedicated mentor, you’ll be learning on the job alongside some of our very best traders. Depending on your skills and the demands of the business, you can expect to be exposed as one of our recommended trader for fellow investors.
Along the way, you’ll sharpen your ability to analyze markets and develop trading strategies, unearth opportunities to generate profit and manage risk, and learn how to successfully structure trades.
We’ll give you plenty of feedback and assess you regularly– there are several ‘stage gates’ that you need to pass through – so you’ll always know how you’re progressing.
