MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

YOUR IMPACT

Looking for an ambitious, creative, hardworking team player to originate and drive thematic and bespoke events and build strong relationships with key clients in Asia ex-Japan (AEJ) to maximize commercial impact.

 

OUR IMPACT

Our core value is building strong relationships with our institutional clients, which include corporations, financial service providers, and fund managers. We help them buy and sell financial products on exchanges around the world, raise funding, and manage risk. This is a dynamic, entrepreneurial team with a passion for the markets, with individuals who thrive in fast-paced, changing environments and are energized by a bustling trading floor. 

RESPONSIBILITIES AND QUALIFICATIONS

HOW YOU WILL FULFILL YOUR POTENTIAL

 

Team Description

 

Corporate Access originates and curates content for clients working closely across our team members across Asia Pacific. Our core clients are institutional investors including long-only asset managers, hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds. We also identify, prospect, and build relationships with corporate clients.

 

Content can be described as access to public and private corporates, industry experts, academics, government officials, bureaucrats, Goldman Sachs thought leadership and subject matter experts. Corporate Access originates and executes thematic and regional events to showcase timely topics and speakers. These events include some of Goldman Sachs’ largest flagship conferences globally, regional field trips, non-deal roadshows, corporate days and reverse inquiries.

 

Corporate Access team is responsible for every aspect of the event including the agenda creation, marketing and branding, client targeting, and content merchandising for post-event distribution. We work closely with Sales teams within the Global Markets Division across Equities and FICC to understand clients’ needs and partner with research, banking / equity capital markets, asset management, private wealth, and the Executive Office to identify and deliver best in class content and speakers to match those clients’ needs and requests.

In the life cycle of a trade, Corporate Access tends to sit at the beginning of that cycle, helping to drive idea generation and providing access to a variety of touch points so that an investor can make an informed investment decision in Asia and ideally, drive the execution of that investment through Goldman Sachs.

 

Corporate Access is currently seeking an ambitious, creative, highly-motivated and hard-working candidate to join our Hong Kong office as an Associate.
