ER to Commodity Trading (Boutiques vs Bunge / Cargill)
Currently an ER analyst interviewing for (junior) trader positions in Amsterdam, Germany and Switzerland. Firms include the likes of Bunge, Cargill and small "boutiques" like ACT Commodities, DXT Commodities. Products are varied (Biofuels, LNG, Grains etc.)
Now I've got two questions
Has anyone even heard of these "boutiques"? Profiles according to LinkedIn seem to be solid (albeit lower quality than theand ER folks)
Should I always choose a/Cargill vs the Boutiques?
