City University together with Amplify Trading, would like to offer students looking to work in the financial industry a unique two-day practical experience that can directly boost their career prospects. This experience is part sponsored by Cass in recognition of the value gained by students.

Amplify Trading’s world renowned financial market training simulations are used each year by corporations such as HSBC, Citibank, Barclays, Bank of China, Bank of America and Deutsche Bank for the training of their new graduate employees. These institutions all recognise the gap that exists between financial market theory and practice, and the ability of our technology to help students bridge that gap.

Students will be asked to engage with contemporary financial markets from the reference point of an asset manager, investment bank sales trader and a hedge fund. Students receive full performance reports as they progress through each role as well as industry recognised certification on completion.

Amplify Trading has a direct connection with many of the largest employers in the industry and this unique practical insight will add significant value to any CV.
Over the course of two days students will:

• Apply a macroeconomic understanding to trade across international financial markets in response to breaking financial news and analysis
• Operate as a market maker and sales trader to experience both the buy side and the sell side of the industry using our flow trading systems utilised by all our investment bank clients
• Allocate assets effectively with the objective of beating the benchmark performance
• Experience first-hand the implications of behavioural finance and the gap between financial theory and practice
