Who are we?
Financial Institutions – Fixed Income Sales
Fixed Income Sales is a department of the Global Markets division within ABN AMRO. We offer sophisticated and plain vanilla products as well as tailor made solutions to financial institutions such as pension funds, asset managers, insurers and bank treasuries. We offer our clients liquidity in instruments such as bonds, interest rate derivatives, fx, repo’s and deposits. Our team of sales persons are in daily contact with our clients to advise and inform them on current developments and trends in the financial markets. The Amsterdam based team covers financial institutions in the Netherlands, Nordics and central banks across the globe.
Global Markets is the heart of Corporate & Institutional Banking and advises clients on the purchase and sale of complex financial products i.e. currency, stocks, fixed income products and derivatives. Our clients come from different parts of the bank, from Retail and Private Banking to Corporate Clients and Financial Institutions.
Working at ABN AMRO means becoming even better at what you do. We understand clients, translate their ambitions into joint success and thus earn their trust. We want our clients to understand our products. That’s why we sometimes say ‘no’ if the risk attached to a product is too great for the client. Serving the client’s interests is also a question of offering and communicating a transparent range of products. Banking is our business, the world is our challenge.
Who are you?
You’re highly analytical and possess strong quantitative and programming skills as well as strong communication skills, but you also have a keen eye for promising developments in the market. The fact that sharing knowledge and working as a team are crucially important on the trading floor we don’t need to tell you. You are results-focused, have an inquisitive mind, enjoy learning new things and adapt easily to change.
You consider yourself to be a top student at university and you have both strong analytical and commercial skills. You have a professional work attitude, enjoy working in a team and are able to deal with multiple tasks within tight deadlines.
