You were hired by “Euler Capital”. You’ve climbed the ranks and have now been given control of your own trading desk. Your team is responsible for a trading book within the capital markets division. You have been assigned a trading book with a maximum size of £100 million. Your team needs to present its strategy to a panel of senior traders, quantitative analysts and risk managers before implementation. You and your team must produce the following:

  • You must choose which asset class your team will specialise in either Equities or FICC (Fixed income, currencies and commodities).
  • Produce an economic overview of financial markets and a trading strategy based on these views.
  • Explain how you would structure a portfolio for your given strategy.
  • Describe how assets selected would be priced and hedged.
  • Assess the levels of risk involved, how they would be minimised and accounted for.
  • Evaluate how trades would be placed and executed in the markets.
  • You must incorporate both fundamental and technical analysis into your strategies.
  • Clarify the ideas behind any quantitative models or programmes you would use.
  • You are limited to one A4 page (both sides)

The top three selected teams (chosen by the judges) will then pitch their ideas in a 10-minute presentation to the judging panel and audience. Each team member must take part in the presentation. Your investment pitch will be followed by a 10 minute Q&A with the panel.
