Expanding fixed income derivatives trading desk at a securities firm in Tokyo, is looking for a senior trader. It seeks a trader who can manage the risk in Japanese yen and Asian swaps trading books. Commercial flow is mainly Japanese yen but some others are to be expected. Big percentage of p/l will come from prop trading and large overnight risk is expected and welcomed. Profit of around US$5M to US$10M per trader would be expected and should have a demonstrated track record with such numbers. You should have around 5 years direct yen swaps trading with 10 years or more in the markets. This financial firm is a very large global bank with extensive retail banking deposits, giving you the lowest cost of funding for such a prop trading platform. Consider it a fresh start.
