Job description


Our purpose – Opening up a world of opportunity – explains why we exist. Here at HSBC we use our unique expertise, capabilities, breadth and perspectives to open up new kinds of opportunity for our more than 40 million customers. We’re bringing together the people, ideas and capital that nurture progress and growth, helping to create a better world – for our customers, our people, our investors, our communities and the planet we all share.

In investment banking we offer financial and advisory solutions that support critical strategic events in a company’s evolution (e.g. an acquisition, divestiture or an IPO) and / or where our clients wish to raise funds from investors in the capital or loan markets to support their operations and fund growth (e.g. a bond issuance or equity raise). Our clients are both traditional corporates, financial and public sector institutions and financial sponsors (e.g. private equity and sovereign wealth funds).

This is an opportunity to join a highly motivated and extremely active team, as a Vice President supporting the Healthcare / BioPharma sectors. The group is part of the Investment Banking Coverage department within Global Banking.

Here’s what you can expect:

As the VP, BioPharma you will support the development of a successful Healthcare/ BioPharma Investment Banking franchise in the United States. Assist with coverage of priority corporate and financial sponsor clients. Share information, knowledge, and ideas to enhance client dialogue and team performance. Contribute to transaction origination and execution. Actively participate on deal teams to ensure that transactions are completed both in a timely and effective manner. Contribute to the building of a professional, proactive, and performance-driven culture. Establish and maintain networks for co-operation with other HSBC businesses, to support the creation of solutions to client needs that span geographical/product boundaries and regulatory environments. Understand and ensure compliance with all relevant internal and external rules, regulations and procedures that apply to the conduct of the business in which the jobholder is involved. Uphold the highest level of integrity and act as a role model for all HSBC values and business principles.

For this role, HSBC targets a fixed pay range between $230,000 and $250,000.

The final fixed pay offer will depend on the candidate and a number of variables, including but not limited to, role responsibilities, skill set, depth of experience and education, licensing/certification requirements, internal relativity, and specific work location.

At HSBC, our overall goal is to provide a competitive Total Reward Package, with an appropriate mix of fixed pay, and variable pay, as part of an employee’s overall total compensation and benefits. Variable pay generally takes the form of discretionary, annual awards (sometimes referred to as a “bonus”).

  • Ability to develop high effective working relationships with colleagues and clients alike.
  • FINRA Licensing S79, S63, S7 required; a 120-day contingency period can be offered to obtain licenses, strictly at the manager's discretion.

As an HSBC employee, you will have access to tailored professional development opportunities to ensure you have the right skills for today and tomorrow.
