SALES & TRADING

The S&T Competition allows delegates to showcase their market-making and profit maximisation abilities. This one-of-a-kind simulation takes place over a day and is a true test of one’s ability to handle real-life trading floor scenarios from both the sell-side and buy-side.

​Working individually, participants experienced trading in three different scenarios. In two of the three scenarios, they traded as an investment bank (sell-side traders). There, they worked in randomly allocated pairs to either undertake market-making activities or secure deals with buy-side firms. In the third scenario, participants will be trading individually as a hedge fund (buy-side) through communicating with investment banks, to generate profit based on market volatility.
