The career path from school leaver to sales trader

Dan Burns talks about his career path from school leaver to sales trader at Virtu Financial, the importance of a diverse skills base on the trading desk, and the value of capacity to learn and to swim in the deep end when starting trading.

He also explains that understanding how much one needs to bring to the role, what can be learned on the desk and the value of support from an employer, are all key elements to fostering talent in the trading team, which can be stressful but also thoroughly enjoyable.
