Deutsche Bank Pandemonium
Wed 22 March 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 GMT
An upcoming event we have is with Deutsche Bank: a trading game called Pandemonium. Designed to be a fun introduction to trading, the game will introduce you to life on a trading floor, and will test your ability to think as a supplier/client of an investment bank, and an investment bank itself. You will be exposed to numerous rounds of trading, building your abilities to think fast, react to news, understand what is important in markets, and how to negotiate with numerous clients. The session will also allow a brief introduction to Deutsche Bank as a whole, and will be led by Managing Director and Head of Deutsche Bank Birmingham, Paul Anderson.
Paul joined Deutsche Bank in 1995. Having started his career as a quantitative analyst in the Group Risk function, Paul moved to Global Markets and spent eight years trading a variety of financial products ranging from interest rates to weather derivatives in the Complex Risk Group. From there he spent four years building an award-winning counterparty credit trading function before moving to Global Transaction Banking in 2011 to create a front-office risk function. In January 2015, Paul relocated to Birmingham to take a newly-created role as Site Head to focus on the improvement of governance, culture and conduct, systems and controls, and focus on the site as a whole. Paul has helped the site foster new talent of all ages, last year worked with the current Co-Chairman of the Aston Trading & Investment Society (ATIS), and is a current colleague of last year’s ATIS President.
There will be snacks and refreshments throughout the evening, and Paul will be available to answer any questions or queries about the financial industry, Deutsche Bank, and Deutsche Bank in Birmingham.
