Conor Killeen: Running for the plane

As part of Euromoney's 50th anniversary coverage, we profile some of the biggest names that we interviewed for our April capital markets focus.

Even in banking there probably hasn’t ever been a time when you would have expected to be asked if you had a private income when interviewing for your first proper job. But that is what happened to Conor Killeen.

He had gone to New York on a student visa in 1982 and worked as an intern at First Boston.

“I had no idea,” he says. “I bumped into a fellow in the Shelburne Hotel who was trying to get into some business with First Boston, so I went onto their graduate training programme. I wondered if the visa was going to be a bit of a problem and I had thought that I would end up working in the UK, but I was headhunted by Schroders in New York.”
