National Trading Competition Awards Student Paid Internship
CFD and Spread betting provider, Spread Co, have shown their commitment to finding the next young trading talent by awarding the winner of a national competition a three month paid placement at their office next summer.

Mateusz Suprewicz, a 19 year old economics student at Surrey University, fought off nine other university economics students in the tense week-long final which tested the student’s trading skills. Mateusz successfully traded CFDs* (Contracts for Differences) in companies like Vodaphone using virtual currency to make a healthy profit. He told us how he did it:

“After researching the available equities, commodities and currencies I decided to take advantage of the recent new developments in a specific company, namely Vodafone. Realising that my research had paid off I deemed it wise to hold onto these shares as much as possible in order to achieve the highest potential capital gains.”

Over the course of his internship, Mateusz will work on the dealing desk and go behind the scenes with the sales and marketing teams to get a full insight in to the world of finance.

As he is an economics student, Mateusz explained that this was an opportunity that he simply could not pass up:
"I’m very pleased to have been given this opportunity. From the placement I am hoping to broaden my knowledge of the world trading markets whilst utilizing the unique investment strategies that Spread Co will teach me. My top tips for success would be:

1. Minimise your risks.
2. Research every aspect of your potential investment.
3. Be patient.

While at Spread Co, I am hoping to broaden my knowledge of the world trading markets whilst utilising the unique investment strategies that Spread Co will teach me"

Shameer Sachdev, Head of Sales and Marketing at Spread Co, explained his plan for Mateusz once he joins the team:

"When Mateusz comes to Spread Co, we hope to give him an even more in-depth experience. Mateusz will work in various departments including the dealing desk, where he will gain valuable insight into how dealer’s action trades and hedge positions. He will also spend time with our compliance team so he can truly appreciate the nuances of being a regulated financial company, working within the FCA’s strict guidelines. We also plan to give him some time working with the relationship management, sales and marketing team, so he can get a well-rounded and comprehensive view of what we do at Spread Co."
