Deutsche Bank-Front office job in Birmingham-UK

As I mentioned, the rationale is that the front office in Birmingham is to serve some corporate clients. Not all clients are based in London, so having sales staff serve the rest of the country makes perfect sense.

Provisional Offer letter

Just ask them when they are sending you the employment contract. If you get a firm answer, then it's almost a sure thing. If they are cagey, then offer could be iffy.

Provisional Offer letter

If I have to venture a guess, sounds like the role requires a sign-off somewhere, which may or may not be the biggest hurdle.

You also need to be aware sometimes the job don't exist. They are put up to collect CVs for their database.

Another HH question

Hi, Can I reveal the name of the firm who just made me an offer to any headhunter, but I have yet to accept? Any harm in doing so? I really want to have a discussion with them about the offer even though they didn't get me the job.

Future prospects of various quant roles

Quant investment strategists -- it is a small market. I would lump it all with strategists, economists, researchers.

Market Risk? Model Validation? Quant Business analyst?

I'm a FO quant for 7 years at an IB, but currently not working. Agents have been bombarding me with specs from MV and risk management. With FO jobs thin on the ground, should I relent and take up a job in risk, or hold my ground for jobs that fit my FO experience no matter how long it takes?

HH question

Thanks everyone for all your advice. The roles I'm applying for are quite narrow, so I don't even feel comfortable mentioning just the names of the banks.

HH question

A headhunter doesn't want to work with me unless I tell him all the places I interviewed/am interviewing with. His justification is that he needs to know whom to avoid approaching on my behalf. Does that sound valid, or should I seriously avoid giving out such information?

What is the state of lesser banks ?

But regional banks are like savings and loans banks. They do not dabble in investment banking and have no need for quants.

What do you think of Peter Schiff and other pessimists ?

QuoteHow about J Paulson? Instead of going on CNBC to claim that he was right, he's probably busy counting the 600% or so returns he got in one of his funds that shorted ABX to the hilt.Or licking his wounds from his short Barclays trade.
