First IB Interview - Jefferies REGAL internship - what do I need to know??

Just got invited for 1st round interview for the REGAL team at Jefferies in London - off cycle internship. What do I need to know? Obviously research about the firm, know how to do DCF, research the industry, what else??

 

jeffs love commercial awareness

What is your view on deal flow and when it will pick up?

What key trends have we seen over the past 12 months within M&A and REGAL specifically?

How has the UK property market performed in 2023 and what do you expect over the next 12 months?

Outlook on stock market and what sectors will see gains over the next year?

recent jeffs deal and why you like it?

perhaps knowledge about antitrust and that activision deal

 

Don't know much about REGAL at Jefferies but this link may help with industry specific things you haven't covered --> https://mergersandinquisitions.com/real-estate-investment-banking-group/

Also have a REGAL transaction ready to talk about in case it gets asked, here's one that Jefferies advised the target company on - Electronic Arts' acquisition of Codemasters (U.K. based game developer, made Formula 1, DIRT & Project Cars) for ~$1.2bn in Dec 2020 --> https://www.reuters.com/article/codemasters-m-a-electronic-arts-idUKKBN…
