Giving Back – Goldman Sachs FX Trader

George Whitaker

George joined the Amplify Trading training programme back in 2011, whilst he was a student at the University of Birmingham. He then went on to trade in FX for Goldman Sachs for over 5 years, managing trillions of dollars of currency risk for the Asset Management division. The journey was one of following his passion in markets which he explains in the short clip below.

After his successful career on the trading desk at Goldman’s, George is coming back to Amplify to help students bridge the gap between financial theory and practice, and help them follow their dream role in financial markets.

We are thrilled to welcome George back to the team and pleased the candidates joining us this summer can benefit so much from his mentorship and support.
