Sales & Trading Series 1: How do you create a new Sales & Trading business?

BFP London are pleased to presents the first Sales & Trading event of our series, with one of the youngest and most outstanding European heads in the investment banking world. How did he do it? What makes him tick?


Manvir Nijhar, Co-Head Of European Equity Derivatives Sales, Citigroup 

At 27, Nijhar is one of the youngest European heads in investment banking.

His accolades in past couple of years in the Finance world have includes:

Forbes Magazine Top 30 under 30 in Global Finance

Sunday Times CEO of the future article

Efinancial News Rising Star Award 


He will be speaking about Equity Derivatives Sales (to the Hedge Fund industry in particular), both general and exotic Equity Derivatives equity derivatives. He will also explain how and why Hedge Funds and banks use/sell these products.

He will also cover on how businesses can be created in banks where they don't currently exist, i.e. at Citigroup. He created a "complex" equity derivatives business from scratch to a market leading one in 12 months with very limited resources, with a method used similar to that of a startup business.

As always, the event will be followed by networking with complimentary drinks and light snacks and you will have an opportunity for personal interaction with Manvir.


We expect this event to be very popular so RSVP in advance via the option above or you can also sign up here

We look forward to seeing you! 

Please note that the RSVP on Meetup will not be accurate as we have advertised across platforms and there will be an estimated number of 60-80 attendees for the event.

    Thank you for your feedback, Traian and Francis. We recommended to Manvir about the topics but due to the diverse mix between seasoned professionals and younger professionals, it might be that it seemed more appropriate to balance it out with some career related topics. However, as you might know, this is not within our control but we will pass the feedback on to him. We also conduct a Q&A session when the audience are free to ask questions of interest to them at most events.

    Judging from the popularity for this event, we are working or organize a S&T panel discussion in our series where we have more focused event about starting a S&T desk.

    As we value your feedback, both of you will be able to attend that session at no cost!

    Speaker was great and the content of the talk was interesting, but had I know this was really a "how do you succeed as a graduate" then I wouldn't have come, and I certainly wouldn't have paid for it!

    Good delivery on how a Equity derivative function operates pre & during the crisis...strategy, process and client relationships

    Manvir answer to the inefficiencies queries - risks and controls was fairly adequate although it one that should be considered more as you can't make ALPHA (return) without some form of (BETA) for thought!

    All in all, 7 out of 10.
