I have an upcoming first round interview with First New York Securities. I was wondering if anyone has past experience with them before and has any information on how they operate or what sorts of questions might come up during the interview?
More specifically, I am curious as to First New York's general trading strategy. I come from a prop shop market making internship background where profits are generated from arbitrage strategies. Does First New York employ a similar market-making strategy or are they more focused on directional trading through some kind of technical analysis, etc?
I'm also interested in knowing whether they are looking more for people who have exceptional quantitative skills, or people who are able to articulate investment pitches?
