You’ll gain insight into how relationship bankers and broader coverage teams across geographies work with product partners and other HSBC functions such as legal, credit, and risk.

You’ll learn how we incorporate Environmental, Social and Governance considerations into our client solutions, ranging from sustainable supply chains to raising green bonds.

You’ll be responsible for researching and understanding clients for the purposes of developing business and managing risk.

You’re intellectually curious and have a keen interest in financial markets. You prioritise with ease and commit yourself fully to tasks.

Details don’t escape your attention. Teamwork and collaboration are how you work. Communicating clearly and concisely is how you make your views and opinions known.

You’ll start with an introduction to financial markets that will give you a better understanding of product overviews, the corporate lifecycle, modelling, valuation, accounting fundamentals and further financial analysis relevant to your team.

By the end of your internship, you’ll have improved your Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint skills and be more confident in your analysis, presentation and visualisation skills.
