Two summers with Barclays: the difference between Banking and Sales & Trading
Ashley has interned with Barclays for two summers. Let her experiences help you find the division with the right fit.
Sales & Trading teams help pension funds, insurance companies, central banks and many other institutional investors act on investment decisions. These teams are integral to the financial marketplace. The sales force and trading teams actively assist clients with trades in response to global events, such as political news and economic data.
Working in Sales & Trading means working at the center of the market. You’ll actively meet with clients, assist in trades and provide your interpretation of the financial climate. Surrounded by a variety of markets crossing stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities, you’ll offer insightful analysis and communicate clearly on a daily basis.
