DAY IN THE LIFE PROFILE

Aoife Carey

European Business Development

I graduated from University College Dublin (UCD) with a Bacherlor’s degree in Commerce with Banking and Finance in August 2011. The following September, I made the big move to the City of London to join ITG’s Graduate Program on the Algorithmic Trading Product Management Team. Moving to a new country and the City seemed daunting at first, but ITG were incredibly helpful and made the move seamless.

From the beginning, all the Grads were made to feel welcome and I truly felt part of the team from day one. I began working on the Algo and Execution Consulting Team which focuses on providing clients feedback on their execution performance and Algo strategies. The work gave me a good understanding on how the Algos function and client specific setups, as well as databases and SQL, which I had never been exposed to before. After Christmas, I focused mainly on the live Algos, assisting in the management of Algo development and client requests for Algo customisation. The role involved interaction with many different teams including Sales, Product Management, Gate, Algo Support, Client-Onboarding, ITG Net and Electronic Trading, and I loved the dynamic aspect of the role. In June 2012, I moved again to join the Client-Onboarding Team, which stands between all the different teams at ITG allowing me to get great exposure to the business as a whole and an understanding of how every part of the jigsaw fits together. I worked on many different large projects as well as assisting in the day-to-day functions of the team, so each day was completely different.

Last December 2012 I was offered the amazing opportunity to join the Business Development team and become the European Product Manager for Commission Management. Business Development is product neutral so our team sells every product at ITG – the best description would be Generalist Sales. The role involves a lot of travelling which definitely never gets boring! This year I have been to New York, Stockholm, Paris, Vienna, Frankfurt, Luxembourg and Dublin. I’ve also taken and completed my FCA exams – Regs, Securities, Derivatives – which allows me to advise clients, as well as passing Level I of the CFA in June this year. I’ll be taking CFA Level II next year. Nine months later, I am still learning new things and meeting new people everyday – that’s what I love about my job.
