    What exactly does World Wide Securities Services do? Are they the equivalent of say GS's Securities divisions? Do they do Sales and Trading or are they mainly advisory?

    Think of it as more of a product, which they offer. They can sell you their products (sales), they can advise you on what to do (advisory), they can place your trades (trading) and more.

    Reading the website basically they manage the whole show for you as a client/institution.

    Why I'm asking is because when JP Morgan recruit on my campus they give one the option to apply to the following business areas:

    Investment Banking
    Sales, Trading & Research
    Finance, Operations & Business Services
    Technology
    Treasury & Securities Services (WSS) (Separate office location)

    So from what you are saying does the Treasury and Securities services overlap somewhat with Investment Banking and Sales, Trading & Research, or how do the areas differ?

    Is it considered to be a back or front office role?
