The bit that I enjoy the most is the sense of achievement I get every time I successfully execute trades, and also when I provide some top-tier client service, my clients will always come back to me and tell me how happy they are with the services.
Elaine, Institutional Sales Analyst

Position: Institutional Sales Analyst, Investment Bank

Location: Hong Kong, China

I work in the Distribution team, which is the frontline of Barclays’ Global Markets department. On a day-to-day basis, I update clients on markets, exchange views and ideas with them, and execute trades, working very closely with other sales intra- and inter-teams, traders, the Risk Management, Operations, Legal and Compliance teams. One of the key challenges in my job is to respond to the various time and risk parameters – whether it’s to update clients or markets, to exchange views or ideas, or execute specific trades.

The reason why I chose Barclays is because it’s a global bank – it has a strong presence in both Asia and Fixed Income. I wanted to work in Fixed Income because it gives me a good opportunity to interact with my clients and discuss and exchange both market and macro views.

I had high expectations to start with when I first applied to Barclays, because it’s a top tier-one bank. I expected Barclays to have a very diverse and friendly working environment where everyone strives to perform at their best. It’s great to have all of my colleagues as mentors and the internal training courses that Barclays provides have been consistently helpful – I’ve benefited from these at every single stage of my two years at Barclays, since Induction Week and training in London.

More importantly, Barclays is a values-driven organisation: Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence, and Stewardship – these are all important Values that have to be demonstrated when we interact with clients and colleagues.

The bit that I enjoy the most is the sense of achievement I get every time I successfully execute trades, and also when I provide some top-tier client service, my clients will always come back to me and tell me how happy they are with the services. And the opportunity this job provides to me to meet and interact with different people from different backgrounds within and beyond the business has further made my job more enjoyable.
