A flourishing Life Insurer is looking for a Derivatives Specialist to join its Group Investment team in Central London.

They are looking for a dynamic individual with experience in Financial Markets / Trading environment to deal with the derivatives / gilt trade execution side and development of operational activities. The role will also involve internal stakeholders management and developing relationships with counterparties.

  • Derivatives trade execution experience in Life / Banking / Asset Management environment (4-8 years);
