HSBC Assessment Centre - Global Markets

12 February 2009 - 12:11pm

Hi guys I have been invited to an AC for Global Markets in a few days and I'm wondering if anyone has been to one already. If so, what is the structure? what activities do they ask you to do? what competencies do they evaluate? do you need to take the numerical and verbal tests again? What questions do they ask in the interview?

Any help would be appreciated, I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

by the way I'm applying to Equities.

Has anyone heard anything back yet from HSBC other than the generic "your application is still under review due to the high quality and quantity of interest in this programme" ?

They asked me on why trading, why hsbc, what will the economy look like in 2050, recent news story, role model, hsbc values. You should also do some search on this forum for info. Hope this helps!

Anyone going through the interview process this year?

Hi all, I have an assessment centre for HSBC in London coming up on Feb 22nd (Global Banking and Markets - Technology Analyst - Global Analyst Induction Program). Can anyone offer some insight into the following:

- What is the essential technical knowledge you need? (EPS, EBIT, EBIDA, discounted cash flow...etc)
- For the case study, how did you structure your presentation? What is unsuccessful versus successful structure?

Thanks -
