About Investment Bank: Corporate Finance

Our Corporate Finance / Origination & Advisory business provides the full range of advisory and financing products and services of a leading global investment bank. Our clients include large-cap and mid-cap corporates, financial institutions, governments, government agencies and financial sponsors.

We recognise that selecting the right investment banking partner can be the key to a company’s success. Our relationships are enhanced by industry sector, country coverage and regional expertise, closely aligned to high-quality client solutions. We offer both buyside and sellside advisory services for Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), restructuring advisory, debt and equity capital raising services  (including our innovative SPAC franchise and our dedicated ESG solutions) and strategic equity transactions. We are able to advise on innovative cross-border and regional transactions in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific.

As part of the Investment Bank, the Capital Markets business is a specialist product coverage area that operates as a partner between Investment Banking Coverage (IBC) areas and Fixed Income & Currencies (FIC) to provide clients with an array of capital raising services. Capital Markets is comprised of three key business lines: Debt Capital Markets (DCM), Equity Capital Markets (ECM), and Strategic Equity Transaction Group (SETG). The desks provide corporate clients advice on raising capital for growth or acquisitions, on refinancing or restructuring outstanding equity or debt and on hedging certain risks relating to their existing equity, fixed income and currency positions.

Division specifics about the graduate role

Upon joining the Bank you will begin your learning journey with our global orientation, followed by professional skills training and technical financial training. 

During your first year with us you will benefit from a graduate learning journey, comprising both technical and professional skills training, further enhancing your learning experience.

You’ll work on projects that find new ways to help our clients reach their financial goals. Your day-to-day tasks will vary depending on your role. But you might be modelling and forecasting a client’s financial statements, valuing a company, preparing marketing materials for a client pitch or for an equity or debt issue. Your learning curve will be steep as you get involved in current deals and interact with clients. But you’ll enjoy plenty of support from managers and mentors along with unparalleled global exposure.

You will be trained by the best, evolve professionally as well as personally, and build a firm foundation upon which to specialise later.

Graduates will be working in one of the following area in Hong Kong:

  • Investment Banking Coverage (Industry Sector / Country Coverage)
  • Merger & Acquisitions (M&A) 
  • Debt Capital Markets (DCM)
  • Equity Capital Markets (ECM)
  • Strategic Equity Transaction Group (SETG)

What we look for

We recruit highly intelligent graduates who are ambitious and adaptable. They have degrees in many different disciplines. Even though good levels of numeracy are important for some roles, you won’t necessarily need a formal mathematical or financial background. We have very comprehensive training programmes that will give you all the technical knowledge you’ll need to build a career with us. Above all, we’re looking for entrepreneurial people who thrive best in a diverse culture where innovation and agile thinking abound.

You should not only be passionate about the world of finance, but also show a keen interest in your chosen field. You already have a record of outstanding academic achievement and you’re eager to go on learning at the same intensive rate. So you’ll thrive on working in a highly collaborative environment with some of the best minds in banking.
