A group of 50 students from the Economics and Management programme at HEC visited SG House at Tower Hill on Friday, 3rd October. They were welcomed with an introduction to the Societe Generale umbrella group by the COO, Philippe Robeyns, followed by an interactive session with the senior recruiter, Alex Pereyra who focused on how students can search for careers in investment banking, how to apply and the benefits, opportunities and values at SG.
As most of the audience were aspiring Economists, we decided to give them a rare opportunity to hear business case studies from two research teams:-
Alexandre Gancz, Head of UK Research talked through the spectrum of research products published by SG and the integral differences between them whilst Brian Hilliard, Chief UK Economist rated no.2 in the world (Thomson Reuters Extel Europe and Euromoney 2014 Survey) provided an insight into his day to day work and was able to provide expert views during the Q&A session.
But a Global Markets insight could not be complete without including the trading floor, in this event a dual presentation was given by the Global Co head of FIC Sales, Albert Loo and Head of Interbank Sales, Alex Chaillou who also happens to be one of the youngest Heads of business within the bank. Together they succeeded in championing SG's appetite for developing young talent.
