"The graduate training programme handbook and classes that teach kdb and finance are well designed."
Graduate, Newry
"The training offered at FD provides their employees with the right amount of technical and financial experience required for working on site with their clients. It usually takes about two months to complete."
Midlevel, Toronto
"The training in your first two years is second to none, after that the company support external study which is good."
Capital Markets, Midlevel, Sydney
"The company offers excellent formal training, including daily classes and textbooks on the basics of financial and technological concepts. The classes are taken by former members of the options programme and understand problems that new entrants may have. They are also willing to teach outside of these classes and go into detail on points to ensure that all new employees understand the points."
Graduate, Newry
"The Options Programme within FD is great. You are not expected to have a high calibre of knowledge of capital markets when starting with the company, however after various workshops, training exercises and exams it is possible to greatly expand your knowledge and expertise."
Graduate, Newry
"As part of graduate programme each employee needs to complete internal training exams. In the first few months new employees receive lectures and workshops on technology and finance. I've picked up many technical skills and lot of financial and technical knowledge."
Graduate, Newry
