Lauren Simmons: Meet NYSE’s Only Full-Time Female Trader
Confluence Daily is your daily news source for women in the know.
Working in an industry where you are one of very few women can be challenging enough — but imagine what it’s like to be the only woman on staff. That’s the case for New York Stock Exchange trader Lauren Simmons. The 23-year-old is an equity trader for Rosenblatt Securities, and she is both the youngest and the only full-time female employee to hold that position at the NYSE.
“When I tell people what my job is they are always surprised,” she tells CNBC Make It. In fact, Simmons says that if you had told her five years ago that she’d end up working on Wall Street, she wouldn’t have believed the news herself. “It’s surreal,” she says.
