I'm reviewing possible interview questions and am having trouble answering the what is the greatest risk you have taken question. Any suggestions on how to answer that question. I was also thinking that I could probably make up a lot of answers since there is no real way to verify what I actually did. Thanks.

    In general, you want to show that you take calculated risks, and have thought through the different options before acting. you don't want to come across as a reckless person - bankers are in general a risk-averse bunch. Also, show that your risks paid off and you got the results you wanted.
