MAKING AN IMPACT
SIMULATIONS TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THEORY AND PRACTICE
LIVE FROM THE CITY OF LONDON
Virtual trading room
For simulation events delivered online candidates access Amplify Trading's state-of-the-art, multi-camera, virtual room. Built specifically to house our simulations, this platform allows users seamless two-way activity between the trainer and all other candidates throughout each simulation event.
RUN THE UNIVERSAL BANK
A holistic understanding of how different areas of a bank come together
Candidates gain a practical understanding of how all the different divisions of a universal bank come together. Moving between Global Markets, Asset Management, IBD and Retail Banking, each role demands their practical understanding to be applied for the smooth running of the entire banking unit.
INVESTMENT BANK SALES AND TRADING
Our flagship simulation delivers a practical understanding of how different roles on the global markets desk of an investment bank come together to facilitate client trades. From market maker, to risk manager or sales trader; candidates rotate through the roles whilst also experiencing the client side of the transaction to gain a holistic understanding of the journey of a trade.
FROM VALUATIONS TO M&A
Candidates engage with our IBD simulation in two stages. First, they apply valuation metrics to raise funds for their clients at a price acceptable to the market before then managing the initial stages of an IPO auction. The second stage involves candidates finding and securing the appropriate merger or acquisition opportunity for their clients, based on geographical and industry strategy synergies.
Candidates are grouped into funds where each asset manager is responsible for an asset class. Based on their research, they apply a complimentary and coherent strategy across assets, whilst also deciding on the funding each asset manager receives. Candidates can also manage a mulit-asset class portfolio where they compete against the benchmark, allocating assets based on their research and understanding of the client needs. PMTrader allows candidates to engage with a range of simulated or real historical market events.
CLIENT MATCHING UNDER PRESSURE
Our broker simulation is used by some of the world’s largest brokers to train and identify new hires. The platform enables the participants to perform the role of a broker under pressure, competing to win client orders whilst leveraging their relationship skills to match those trades with counterparties. The simulation creates a fantastic trading floor atmosphere and a healthy competitive experience.
LIVE MARKET TRADING
LiveTrader allows candidates to manage risk across asset classes in real time, and experience the pressures of working in today’s financial markets. With a live video and audio connection to the Amplify trading floor and feeds from all major newswires, LiveTrader measures how candidates make decisions within an environment of uncertainty and risk. Key variables include; discipline, patience and the ability to manage emotional pressures.
