The career insight series is back and this time I am joined by Ayman Rahman, the CEO & founder of energy tech trading firm DARE
Our connection with Ayman goes back over 10 years when as a student at UCL he spent time training with Amplify learning the ropes in our prop trading division. Upon graduation, Ayman obtained a trading analyst position at a commodity derivatives trading firm and within less than two years his performance saw him quickly rise through the ranks to become the head of fuel oil trading.
Fast forward to the summer of 2016, Ayman decided to break out on his own and founded DARE, an energy tech company using the power of data science, analytics, and trading expertise to help the world reach a renewable future, faster. Today his company and mission continue to go from strength to strength.
In this conversation, recorded in the summer of 2020, Ayman shares his top five tips for success for any student looking to break into finance and obtain a role in trading. From demonstrating passion, networking, and having stamina, to learning how to admit what you don't know and the importance of going somewhere you can have an impact.
I hope you enjoy the conversation, but more importantly, be left feeling inspired and motivated to make the future your own.
