Buy Side Equity Trader

Date:  10-Nov-2022

Brussels, BE, 1040



The Buy-Side Dealing Desk, part of the Investment Banking department of Bank Degroof Petercam, is the global execution hub dedicated to the Institutional Asset Management and Private Banking entities of the Group.
More than supplying a sole execution service, the Buy-Side Dealing Desk is a strategic partner embedded in the portfolio management process and is sharply focused on the optimal market implementation of the investment decisions taken by the portfolio managers, and this across asset classes, while contributing to alpha generation by minimizing trading impact and sharing relevant market input. The successful candidate will join a team of market experts where technology and data play an essential role in the trading setup. The trader will be part of the multi asset class trading team and will primarily focus on trading equity instruments and related asset classes.

To reinforce our Buy-Side Dealing Desk, we are looking to hire a Buy-Side Equity Trader.
