My fellow monkeys,
This is kind of an elementary question but one that I couldn't think of a perfect answer for. If you were assigned on a new deal/project, how would you go about learning everything there is to learn about the industry of the company in question? What exactly would you want to know?
I'm angeneralist at a bank and have been working for about a year but i've never actually had to learn an industry well enough during a pitch or a deal. I would assume guys and maybe industry coverage bankers elsewhere are good at this so i would love to get everyone's opinion.
