    They don't really exist anymore. The closest match is inter-dealer broking. These types of roles have degree requirements. There are still a handful of roles you can get without a degree such as at a Metals Exchange, but you need very strong family connections.

    Hargreaves Lansdowne and killick & co do still do traditional retail broking but it's moving online more and more these days...
