You’re an investment operations analyst working in a large bank. You notice that one of the FX traders is placing very large bets. While these bets are technically inside the limits, you know the trader plans to leave the bank following this bonus round.
At your bank, traders are paid bonuses based on the results of their trades.
What would you do?
- What – if any – action would you take?
- Would you speak up against this type of remuneration?
We challenge you to create a healthy discussion with your colleagues and post a comment below. You could even encourage them to consider taking The Banking and Finance Oath! If you would like to submit an ethical dilemma to feature in an upcoming weekly challenge please email: email@example.com.
