I just received a phone call in mid Feb, have you guys head back from anybody? Did you guys get a phone screening first before going into the office for interviewing?

CMO includes ECM, DCM, Levfin, but also several other products. A quick google search would've helped you there.

As far as the recruiting process, it's pretty much over. Best case scenario is that you are on the waitlist at this point in time.

Citi Capital Markets Origination First Round Interview (Originally Posted: 01/28/2012)

I just found out I have a 1st round interview at Citi for their CMO division. While I'm not too familiar with this division at Citi, I know a fair amount about MS' GCM division and I'm assuming they're similar / the same.

If anyone is familiar with this division and knows what I can expect in terms of interview questions (technical vs. fit, what kind of technicals, etc), I would greatly appreciate it. Are the types of questions going to be a lot different than IBD?

Thanks in advance

Citi CMO-how are they unique? Please! (Originally Posted: 01/26/2010)

Hi Everyone. I just received my first super day invitation for Citi CMO's Summer Analyst Program. I have some idea of what capital markets are and how it's divided between the different group but as I was trying to conduct some research on the internet, there doesn't seem to be very much I could find. So if someone could help me answer a few of these questions, that'll be wonderful.

  1. How is Citi's CMO different from say any other Capital Market groups? ( During an interview, one analyst mentioned that Citi's CMO is unique but I can't really find why...)

  2. In equity capital markets, what do they do other than IPO's and secondary offerings?

  3. If you know of any books ( I tried looking some) that gave you a better insight into capital markets, please let me know of one.

  4. If you have any experience with Citi, the superday, CMO, or just any advise, please share.

Oh and also, maybe what are some good areas for questions in CMO. I'm not trying to be lazy just don't want to make a fool of myself.

Thanks everyone in advance!

Citi CMO Assessment Center (Originally Posted: 11/11/2014)

I have been invited to the assessment center of Citi for the position of Summer Analyst. The assessment consists of 3 competency interviews, case study and presentation. Has anyone been through this process already? And could give me any advice or tips?

Very thankful for any advice

Hey hulle_bulle, How did the assessment centre go? I have mine coming up this week and I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me what the case study was about? Did you have to do a numerical test?

Many thanks!

Citi Capital Markets Origination (Originally Posted: 12/24/2008)

I just was invited to interview with this group, what are opinions on this opportunity?

It's for an SA position in NYC.

yesman, what's your opinion? Comment below:

i'm not keen on capital markets gigs - they usually tout themselves as having the benefits of trading - without the moment to moment stress - coupled with the corp fin skills of IBD - without the hours.

the result is that you don't build a good skillset because you end up tying loose ends that neither IBD nor salespeople/traders want to do. your function is to know the deals in the market and the terms on those deals, so you'll do loads of comps and summaries of current's a lot of data dumping.

a lot of these groups are getting absorbed into IBD (and making cuts...) as banks realize that giving a few MDs and analysts a bloomberg is cheaper than hiring a whole group.

I went through interviews for Capital Markets SA and didn't find anything here that was comprehensive. Figure I'll give an overview for what I went through.

Technical: Know basic IB (Valuations, DCF), bond pricing, and maybe a stock pitch (didn't get this one but I can imagine them asking).

Industry: This one is important. Know a couple recent developments in bond markets, in an industry or two for equity markets, and something in any international market. Should also know one or two recent projects the bank has worked on.

Behavioural: Standard stuff. Leadership, quant skills, teamwork, etc.
