Product Control in Investment Banks

Postby tanmeiwei19 » Thu, 26 Apr 2012 9:17 am

Does anyone know what are the prospects of product controller? What are the skills and quality sets that are transferable? I was offered a position in one of the IB, but I am afraid that this might spell the end of my career path if I cannot move on to other jobs that are relevant to the context of product control. Thanks!

Try UBS, they definitely need some good product controllers within index futures........

One logical next step can be that a product controller goes on to become a trader of that product.

An alternative is that as you have such a deep knowledge of the trade process (from execution, through settlement, to booking, funding, accounting, risk etc) that are ideally positioned to become a project manager on trading system upgrades and installations.

Another route is going on to being a/the Financial Controller.

I've seen all these steps being made, particularly the first two, from product control. It is far from a dead end job.
