If you don't know black sholes by heart, quant-fund brainteasers, and where the fintech space is going in 10-yrs, you're fucked!

Really depends on your interviewers. I was ready to go bananas on some fama french, but got simple DCF and accounting questions instead (1 each). Also if they think you are impressive, they seem to just assume you know certain questions. I only finished 60% of my DCF answer before the guy moved on, assuming I knew the rest.

I did it. It was relatively chill - typical behavioral questions tbh, and some technicals which were not hard. You should be more than fine. You also have unlimited tries to record your answers lollll. You might as well knock it out.

Deal flow is insane. All transaction-focused, little to no pitching, and they charge insane fees because they do so many transactions. Also comp is above street

No pretty sure comp is above street. Heard starting base is 90k?

For me, first round was 2, 30 minute video interviews. It was all pretty behavioral and basic technicals. 

Questions I got were: 

1. Tell me about yourself

2. Why Investment Banking?

3. Why FT Partners?

4. What was the most difficult class you've taken?

5. Tell me about your most recent internship experience, what was a project that you've done, what did you learn?

6. Tell me about this other work experience you have

7. What are some valuation methodologies?

8. Why is LBO considered the floor?

9. How do you get to unlevered free cash flow from revenue?

Good luck!

Would it just be the ebit(1-tax)+d&a-capex- change in nwc? or is there a specific way to calculate from revenue?

It took them a couple weeks to get back to me. I think they've had multiple waves of superdays.

How long did it take back for first round interviews? I got a calender link invite last week on Thursday but no update, any chance all spots for filled for San Fran?
