Dear Ranchers,

So far i have worked primarily in java technology. I want to pursue a career in investment banking sector,
but as techie. So I want to know which all skills(both technical and domain) are required to land up a job.
with any major investment banking company.

Mainly good technical and soft skills. Domain knowledge in finance will be a bonus. Mention your interest to work for an investment bank in your CV and at the job interview with proper reasoning to make a break. It took me a while to break in as most employers preferred previous experience in a finance sector. This was in Australia.

Typically in a trade capture system, the front end will be thick client (usually WPF). So, a Java developer will typically work on receiving trades from some exchange/tranding platform over middleware, converting them to a format that the system understands, persisting the trades and feeing the trade messages downstream over middleware. Of course the actual work will vary from project to project but by an large, the skill sets in demand are:
1. core Java (with good understanding of multithreading and garbage collection)
2. JMS
3. Some middleware technology like MQ/Tibco etc
4. XML based technologies
5. database (relational + document-oriented)
 
No more fooling around. Read this tiny ad:
