Are you a penultimate year student interested in a career in Sales & Trading? J.P. Morgan’s 2021 Markets Competition is a fantastic way to further develop your strengths within this area.
The competition provides a unique platform for students to showcase practical skills and exhibit their understanding of financial markets. Participants will be judged on strength of rationale, cohesion and attention to detail, as well as knowledge of the market and products.
Competing as individuals, participants will formulate a short and concise trade idea in both Equities and FICC (Fixed Income, Currencies & Commodities). Subsequently, trade recommendations will be assessed by members of the J.P. Morgan markets team. The final round will involve the top performing individuals presenting to several of J.P. Morgan’s key executives with a Q&A session to follow presentations. Finalists will receive feedback prior to the presentation. First prize for students in their penultimate year will involve an invitation to final round interviews of J.P. Morgan’s 2021 Summer Markets internship program. Second prize for penultimate year students will consist of a mentoring session with J.P. Morgan.
