Anyone else?CheersTomCan anyone give a good description of what a structurer really does? Some people say Banks tend to hire MBAs mostly for structuring positions. Other say that it is a Quant position. It would be great if some gives an example of the process involved in structuring a product.cheers,Nkisi

If it is a quant type position, what knowledge does it require? Broad range of everything? Is it the same with people doing hybrid?

As I have understood it there are two types of areas when it comes to structuring:1. Structurer close to trading:- May have the following tasks: pricing, risk analysis and modelling, model testing, hedge optimization etc - Should have a good knowledge about the models, risk in products etc 2. Structurer close to sales:- Should have good knowledge about pricing, the market, the products, laws (accounting rules etc), tax etc- May have following tasks: creating business cases to the sales desk, write presentations, price up indications. Is a marketer of new/(old) products.
