In order to appreciate the key roles and responsibilities on the trading floor, it is important to understand the broader role that banks play in financial markets which is that of liquidity provider and intermediator.  In particular this helps to distinguish the fine line between market maker and prop trader which is the current contentious issue around the Volker rule.  It is also helpful to understand the risks that individuals are incentivized to take in financial markets (both financial and reputational).  Drawing on her personal experience as a derivatives trader for 10 years on the trading floor, Terri Duhon gives some pointers to success as well as highlighting the key pitfalls in the financial markets space for new hires.

Banking Ethics:  An Oxymoron?
Reed Smith Women in Structured Finance November 20 2012

With finance under the microscope today, the topic of banker’s ethics is constantly being analysed.  What is often badly misunderstood in this analysis is that the bank trading floor, one of the most risky areas of banking today, not only serves a crucial purpose in financial markets, but also incentivizes individuals to take risk. With that incentive in place, if a bank doesn’t have a strong risk management culture and framework, there are many people who will happily operate in the “grey zone”.  Remember these individuals are incentivized to take risk and this “reputation risk” is just another one of the risks they take.  In the meantime, regulators are supposed to be mitigating these risks but have historically often succeeded in running to keep up with an ever changing financial landscape and causing sometimes damaging unintended consequences as a result.
