The TRADE’s Rising Stars Revealed

The TRADE’s Rising Stars of Trading and Execution awards are back for a second year, recognising 40 of the more promising up-and-coming talents in buy-side trading.

Following a nomination process and months of extensive market research, this year’s list of Rising Stars has expanded to include individuals from pension funds, building societies, and the post-trade sector.

Considerations have been given to each individual’s day-to-day role in the business, career path to date, involvement in industry initiatives, as well as academic success in professional examination schemes.

The 40 selected stars will be given their awards before The TRADE’s Leaders in Trading event on 16 November 2016 at The Savoy Hotel.
