After a brief introduction, Pierre Palmieri, head of global finance Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking, told students that the fundamental role of banks has not greatly changed since the crisis. However, he indicated that in their work as intermediaries to investors to issuers they have changed their focus to better serve different types of clients. Mr Palmieri brought up the bank’s relationship with Glencore, a leading commodities trading firm Société Générale has been working with since 2003, to illustrate this shift.

Pierre Palmieri also went over the impact of the crisis on the banking industry and the main changes that had to be made, from the adaptations required following the new Basel II and III regulations, through the creation of new business models, to new methods of refinancing.

Mercè Batista, international campus manager Société Générale Group, then detailed career opportunities including internships, VIE, the General Inspection Graduate Programme and the CIB Junior Graduate Programme. She also gave students advice on how to apply for these programmes and how to maximise their chances of success.
