When people talk about the middle office, they are referring to functions such as IT, accounting (finance) and risk management (which we also deal with in other pages of this book). When they talk about the back office, they mean operations. Instead, the division is a support function  –  operations professionals support people in the front office to make sure everything works smoothly and the bank gets paid. The main business of operations is clearing and settling trades. Clearing trades involves making sure that the records one bank has kept of the sale of a financial security match those of the bank or organisation it sold the security to.Regulators are demanding more and more detail in the way banks document and report their trading activity, so operations divisions have grown in importance over the past few years. ‘Settlements’ covers everything from preparing  the documentation required for a sale, to making sure the bank has been paid for all the shares it has bought and sold.  I view derivatives as time bombs, both for the parties that deal in them and the economic system. Basically these instruments call for money to change hands at some future date, with the amount to be determined by one or more reference items, such as interest rates, stock prices, or currency values. For example, if you are either long or short an S&P 500 futures contract, you are a party to a very simple derivatives transaction, with your gain or loss derived from movements in the index. Derivatives contracts are of varying duration, running sometimes to 20 or more years, and their value is often tied to several variables.  A call option,  which is a simple type of  stock option that gives the buyer the right (but not   the obligation) to buy 100 shares of a certain stock at a pre-determined price, is a derivative because the value of the option depends on what the underlying stock does. In the case of GE stock options, for instance, whether the stock option makes money, loses money, or breaks even depends entirely upon what Gen eral Electric shares do. Thus, the options “derive” their value from GE stock. They are a derivative. Skills sought While operations positions are very processdriven, which requires obsessive attention to detail, accuracy and consistency, it’s also an are a that is surprisingly fast-paced, especially as banks are always grappling with new regulations and looking for ways to make their back office more efficient. While operations professionals have few clientfacing responsibilities, they are essentially ensuring the smooth running of the organisation and therefore any problems they solve help enhance the ‘client experience’.  Good communication skills are therefore important, because people in operations deal with many other divisions and functions within the bank. Would you be comfortable, for example, dealing with the demands of an impatient trader? What interests you most about a career in investment banking? Candidates need to be analytical, detail-orientated, enthusiastic, hard-working and responsible. The use of examples will best illustrate this. What differentiates this company from other companies you are interviewing with? What are the major reasons for your success? He told me his secret to success was to 'Look at each day as a new opportunity to be your very best. Set high goals, be honest, never say no, and work with people who share your passion for doing their best.' I've always remembered that advice and try to live it every day. I am very self  motivated, determined and honest. I really love what I do and I try to surround myself with people who share similar passions. I thrive on this type of environment
