Hi everyone,

I've got an AC for HSBC global markets origination - FT role - for next week.

The email says:
"During the assessment centre, you will undertake a number of exercises including: a numerical reasoning aptitude test, a motivational interview, business interviews and a business-related case study discussion."

any ideas how many interviews will there be in total?
what type of technical questions can I expect?

also, what is a "business-related case study discussion"?

thanks a lot

Hi Hazelground,

I got exactly the same message, but then for an AC for Global Asset Management. Hope it went well for you this week.

What did the business interview and business related case study entail for you in the end?

Thanks for your help!

Robert

Got rejected so it did not go in an ideal way ...LOL
technical interviews were weird for me as at least one entailed questions like "where the world is heading" and "can you take me through the market trends for the past few years", etc...
the other interview asked me to predict when the interest rates will be raised again...oh well...

case study is easy, but you need to use your knowledge and insights (apart from the given material) to answer the following Q&A....

as i got rejected, i dont feel i am in a position to comment on the level of preparation needed...but i am sure you'll be fine

Good luck

For those who got the AC from HSBC Global Asset Management offer, I would like to ask about the case study. What kind of case study did you have? (Like what sort of areas did they ask about) And did you have the role play section? My ac is coming and your help will be much appreciated! Thank you very much!
