    Hey,

    One of my rotations this summer at a BB american firm within global markets is on the corporate principle investment desk, and I have no idea what they do.

    Can anyone enlighten me as to what the desk does, and how lucrative it is?

    Any help much appreciated.

    Just guessing here, but I think it's similar to the proprietary side of the firm. Although I may be wrong because i'd imagine prop traders would also be market makers and sit on the same desks rather than being separate? Maybe it varies bank by bank.

    Here's HSBCs site on principal investments:
