As a broker money markets, you are the center of trades that occur in the money market. Your daily business is to close deals for foreign and domestic institutional clients such as banks, national treasuries (e.g. the Dutch State), pension funds, insurers and corporates. An example is the currency deposit market, where currencies such as EUR, USD and GBP flow from one client to another. Another market you deal in is the Foreign Exchange (FX) Swap market. In this market you help your clients to close FX swap deals (where one currency trades for another, e.g. USD for EUR).
If you mastered these markets, you can combine them to discover arbitrage opportunities for your client portfolio. As prices tend to fluctuate all day, you need to act fast to deal at the best price in the market. It is important that you maintain and build excellent relationships with existing clients and develop business with new clients. With your social and outgoing personality, you know how to level with the many clients in your portfolio.
