Sales personnel / Broker
Otherwise known as brokers, sales personnel act as the intermediary between clients (on the buy-side) and traders. Clients tend to be company investors, hedge funds, high-net-worth individuals and pension fund managers. They will communicate with clients on the phone when the markets are open, to sell them stocks, bonds and currencies.
A trader will follow the markets in order to trade at the best price for their sales colleague’s client. They will buy and sell stocks, bonds and currencies in order to generate extra revenue and to get the best deal for the client.
