Please describe the interview / hiring process.
Previously went in for an informational interview to talk with different analysts about their investment process, the job itself, etc. Got a call a few months later that a position had opened up and went in for a formal interview. The process took a few hours with back to back ~30 minute interviews with analysts, head of research, and the CEO of the firm. Most questions were behavioral with a few asking me to pitch an investment idea + rationale behind it. After that I was given a company and had to create a model and write an investment report on the company.
