If you were in an interview situation and you were asked:


  • Why do you want to work in investment banking - namely wealth and asset management?
  • Why do you want to work in the Global Capital Markets?


What would be some good responses?


Wealth and Asset management is a service provided by banks to help wealthy individuals and larger companies invest, protect, grow their money - in addition to making/selling financial products to them tailored to their requirements.

Global Capital Markets are financial markets in which you can buy and sell bonds, and other long term securities.

Nobody is going to fill in your application for you. They are asking why do you want to do these things, not "go and find out why other people on an internet forum want to work in etc.". Talk about what you know about the area you are applying, your personal motivation and how your skills/experience to date line up.

Think about the role you are applying for. For instance if you were applying for a job as a trader for an aggressive US investment bank you might say you would get a kick out of negotiating big deals. Or say if you wanted to be an adviser for a wealth manager you might say you would enjoy working with high net worth clients and a diverse range of financial planning products life assurance, investments, private equity etc.
