The Front Office team gathers the following departments: 


o Global Markets (MARK),

MT will enroll in a comprehensive program to be trained in areas of sales & trading, supplemented by exposure in other major business lines within the bank. The program looks to equip the MT with solid working knowledge dealing with FX and rates derivatives, either required for a career in trading, if the candidate suits the quality, or for a career in sales (facing corporate or financial institution), if the candidate sees him or herself confident and excited in a client-facing environment. Global Markets is a dynamic workplace with sales working extremely closely with trading (and structuring based out of our Hong Kong office). For a market professional, career is not the best word for it, it is a life we are pursuing.
