Sales and Trading

Sales and Trading

Sales and trading is the backbone of an investment securities firm. Be it a stock brokerage, investment bank or a hedge fund, if a firm cannot sell its services, then it is unable to do business, and if it cannot trade well, then it becomes difficult to attract and retain clients. The Swiss stock market is currently the eighth largest stock market worldwide.

SIX Swiss Exchange, based in Zurich, is Switzerland's principal stock exchange. SIX Swiss Exchange was the first stock exchange in the world to incorporate a fully automated trading, clearing and settlement system in 1995. The exchange is controlled by an association of 55 banks. The Swiss market index reported figures of just shy of a trillion as of October 2019.

Switzerland’s stock market capitalization currently ranks third in the world, behind Hong Kong and South Africa respectively, at 204.27% of GDP, far above the world average which is 71.05%. In Europe, The FIA European Principal Traders Association (FIA EPTA) represents more than 25 trading firms that trade their own capital in futures, options and equities markets worldwide.

Our consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations across the sales and trading job markets throughout Switzerland and Europe.
