AIM Students Will Visit J.P. Morgan Trading Floor in Chicago on Friday

This Friday (April 29th) the AIM students and Dr. Krause, AIM program director, are headed to Chicago for eight equity presentations (follow the link for more information about the event). Following the student pitches we are headed to J.P. Morgan for a tour of their Chicago trading floor.

Thanks to the hospitality of Peter Rode (MU ’00), Executive Director, Interest Rate Risk Management, J.P. Morgan, Chicago, we will be able to visit their Sales & Trading operations. Peter was also a participant in the recently held 'Ins and Outs of Wall Street' event at Marquette.

J.P. Morgan, one of the largest investment banks with offices worldwide, offers products and solutions across a variety of platforms, including: Investment Banking, Treasury Services, and Securities Services. J.P. Morgan's investment banking business encompasses mergers and acquisitions, financial advisory and capital raising operations. As part of one of the largest derivatives houses in the world, the J.P. Morgan offers risk-management solutions including interest rate swaps, interest rate options, foreign exchange forwards and options, structured products, cross-currency swaps and government bonds.

The students are looking forward to the Chicago visit to J.P. Morgan. In past visits we have trekked to the Chicago trading facilities at Goldman Sachs and BMO Capital Markets. Dr. Krause, AIM program director, said, “We are thankful to Peter Rode for making our J.P. Morgan trip possible. Additionally, we are appreciative that Ted Neely of Goldman Sachs and Dave Kucera of BMO hosted our students. The Chicago ‘road trip’ is one of the highlights each semester for our students.”
