If you want to have global clients and opportunities abroad, then HSBC is a natural choice

My current rotation on the graduate programme is FX Options Trading. In FX everyone’s day starts early.

I start by catching up on what has happened in the foreign exchange markets the previous night. After reading through our positions by our Hong Kong traders, I am ready for our morning global call. We speak to teams in London and Hong Kong about our positions, where the markets are and risk. Then it’s my responsibility to prepare a report which is issued globally.

As the day progresses I will spot trade, buying one currency against selling another currency at an agreed price for settlement on the spot date. It was a bit daunting at first but the traders in our group are happy to help. I love what I do and can’t believe I am already on the trading floor so soon into my banking career.
