I have been a risk quant for a few years, and I am looking to move into trading. I have had a couple of job interviews, and I have been asked "Why do you want to move into trading". My answer would be "I have been in risk modeling for a long time, the work is mostly for regulatory purposes. I enjoy the quantitative aspect of it, but I would like to gain exposure to the business side of financial markets. I am a very ambitious person, I enjoy taking calculated risks as you can see from my experience in xxx, and I think I would strive in a high pressure, fast paced environment. Therefore, I think trading would be a good option for my career.
Would this be a good response?
Many Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
