    Message from our Management Trainee

    Jasmine Tso

    2016 Management Trainee

    When I joined the Management Trainee Programme, I was given the opportunity to gain a thorough insight into the core functions of Hong Kong’s financial market. The departmental familiarisation and training provided me with comprehensive knowledge of the company’s businesses as well as the operations of Hong Kong’s financial industry. Through the departmental attachments, not only did I increase my professional knowledge, but I also developed leadership and teamwork skills which are vital to my personal career development.

    In the first week of my rotation in the Market Development division, I was asked to be in charge of a system development project which involved liaising with various teams. I had to take initiative in decision making and problem solving when faced with difficulties. Despite my lack of experience, I was given responsibility and was able make a contribution to the team at the same time, which was very memorable and rewarding!

    2016 Management Trainee

    My quantitative finance background proved to be an invaluable asset to me at HKEX. The coursework I had at university prepared me well for the rigorous challenges in a work setting, particularly in terms of familiarising myself with HKEX’s wide spectrum of financial products available to investors and the sophisticated market operation happening day-to-day at the Exchange.

    I am also deeply impressed by the amount of resources dedicated to all MTs during the first month’s orientation and familiarisation. It combined departmental overviews, technical and communication skills workshops as well as interactive team building activities that allowed us to develop camaraderie within our group. These activities have helped me transition smoothly from school to the workplace. Along with the on-the-job experience after formal training, we are given further social and career development opportunities to expand our professional network by taking part in the mentoring programme and attending a series of activities. The thoughtful design of this MT programme truly demonstrates that people matter at HKEX.

    2015 Management Trainee

    There is no better way to take a front-row seat in the securities market than by working at HKEX. The Management Trainee Programme offers me excellent exposure in key functions behind the robust Hong Kong securities market. Here, I work alongside professional teams through either participating in market initiatives or supporting daily functions. HKEX, as a market regulator and listed exchange, allows for a comprehensive view on listing and business functions.

    In the Listing Division, taking part in monitoring issuers’ post-listing compliance really enriches my exposure to our frontline regulator role. I gained a deeper understanding of current market behaviour ranging from mergers and acquisitions and fundraising to financial statement reporting through interaction with colleagues in accounting and legal. Whether it is an internal intellectual discussion or external case negotiation, this technical environment has proven itself to be a unique learning ground for new joiners keen to explore the dynamics of the securities market.

    2012 Management Trainee

    In Group Strategy, we often collaborate with different business units across the firm to develop new initiatives. Moving into this role was a natural transition for me because the Management Trainee Programme equipped me with a thorough understanding of the key business areas through its department rotations. Along the way, I have also fostered great relationships with colleagues – which are extremely helpful when you are only one phone call away from the subject experts.

    As a Management Trainee in Group Strategy, my typical day will usually be related to business planning which consists of market research and stakeholder engagement. As the development of new initiatives or strategies often requires deep understanding of the market, trainees are exposed to senior management internally and externally where they can learn from their years of experience. At the end of the day, not every idea will be implemented but it is a challenging and dynamic process which I truly enjoy.
