With Cynthia Attah and Danielle Cammarosano
At HSBC, we welcome recent graduates who will bring fresh perspectives and knowledge to our different business areas. Our graduate analyst program is designed to stretch and challenge new hires, allowing them to work with a network of colleagues and mentors who provide support and growth opportunities. The analysts gain the skills they need to progress their career and contribute to HSBC’s continuing success. We met with Cynthia Attah and Danielle Cammarosano, two analysts who joined our 2020 analyst class to discuss their experience in their 6 months on the job.
Tell us a bit about your background before you joined the HSBC team.
Cynthia: I’m Cynthia Attah. I’m from Somerset, NJ and I attended Rutgers University where I graduated with a degree in Finance and Economics. Prior to starting at the bank full time, I completed internships at RCLCO, a boutique asset management firm in Los Angeles, and BofA Merrill Lynch where I interned in the Global Wealth and Investment Management division.
Danielle: I attended Fordham University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Finance with a minor in Economics. My first internship was during my sophomore year with Borland Capital Group, a family office in midtown. My manager at Borland, Kevin Connors, was instrumental in igniting my interest in and passion for finance. Following my junior year, I interned with HSBC on the ISB West Region team under Tracy Redfern and Ann Brusgaard.
What initially drew you to the HSBC grad analyst program?
Cynthia: I was drawn to the grad program at HSBC mainly because of the rotational aspect and the commitment to training young talent. The one week orientation in London, credit training course and credit boot camp ensured that we were equipped with the right tools to succeed in our program.
