What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

Know about what the company does. Capital markets is around about 20% of what we do - the London Stock Exchange Group has a whole host of companies, from a major clearing house, to a hugely lucrative index business, to a huge amount of financial technology services and products. The Group also owns most of the Italian financial market infrastructure.

Have a clue about finance. By this I mean you need to understand the whys of financial markets. Finance is a transportation business with two purposes; to move risk from people who don't want it to people who do want it, and to move capital from people who have it but don't have anything to do with it, to entrepreneurs etc. who desperately need it. THAT is at the very heart of what the Exchange does, and it is a pivotal part of generating economic growth. It is NOT enough to simply know what an option is and how to price it - you need to understand the financial services industry from a holistic perspective, and how it has grown and evolved over the past 10 years due to regulatory pressures and changes in economic environment.

Do you have any interview tips?

You will almost certainly have an interview with someone from LCH.Clearnet. This means that you should know what LCH.Clearnet does, have some idea of how clearing works, what initial and variation margin is, and what how risk is evaluated (VAR models).

Display an interest in people - your interviewers, your fellow candidates, and the people who come and talk to you at lunch. This is the best way to find out whether you want to work here or not, and to actually succeed on the grad programme.
