    In the summer of 2020 James Daly joined the Amplify programme to establish a path in finance after his professional football career. Supported by the Professional Footballers’ Association he joined the team for three weeks of intensive training.

    During his time with Amplify Trading he was joined by the Co-Head of Prime Brokerage for Morgan Stanley Will Smith who worked with the cohort to help them better understand what Prime Brokerage meant, and how it was different to other areas of the bank.

    This turned out to be excellent preparation for his future interviews helping him secure a role in Prime Brokerage for Morgan Stanley in the summer 2021.

    This was a particularly strong result given James had missed out on the traditional route of Spring week’s and internships due to commitment to his sport

    Before James starts with Morgan Stanley he is continuing to help the Amplify Trading team support more students in their practical training this summer.
