HSBC invests in your career and aims for you to be challenged at all times. Mentors and buddies point you in the right direction and help broaden your knowledge of the wider business

I started at HSBC on the Global Asset Management internship when I was in the penultimate year of my Economics degree at Cambridge. The internship gave me a real flavour of what Asset Management was about. I worked alongside the product development team and undertook projects such as reviewing global fund platforms. I had to deliver a presentation to senior management about socially responsible investment and was fortunate to be offered a place on the graduate programme. It was great going back to university knowing a great job was waiting for me when I finished my degree.

On the graduate programme I worked in a number of roles including equity research, institutional sales and product development. The flexibility and variety allowed me to try my hand in numerous roles to find out which I enjoyed the most.

Following completion of the graduate programme, I moved to the Macro and Investment Strategy team where I conducted primary global macro research on different economies. Within my first six months of joining the team I had conducted analysis and research on the sovereign debt crisis in Argentina, escalating geopolitical tensions in Ukraine and Russia, the economic slowdown in China and the Greek sovereign debt crisis - among others. I am now a Strategist in the Global Multi Asset team where my work involves analysis and research on macroeconomics and asset allocation, providing direct input into our multi asset investment decision making process.
