Sales vs Trading
Prospect student in a master of Quant Finance at a Target in Continental Europe here and was wondering if someone could give me an overview of traders vs sales traits/perspectives going onward and "atmosphere" at more senior levels.
I am still unsure about my choice as I kind of see perks in both and have some doubts regarding each's responsibility in the long run (ie how analytical do sales have to be and how much insights is really expected of them)
Quick presentation about myself: I love markets (and talking about markets...) so would not really considering IB/pure corp fin roles. Comfortable with maths/pricing/coding but nothing close to a specialist in each. Personality wise, kind of introverted but not shy and do not feel uneasy talking on the phone/in person for hours, just not the huge party/groups guy.
Sorry if it seems a bit redundant as it ultimately falls to what I really want to do but was really curious to have different perspectives on the matter to help me.
