Acing hedge fund case studySubscribe
Relatively new to hedge fund recruiting and would appreciate some advice on how to ace the case studies.
What are the main reasons a candidate gets dinged during the case study round? And what level of analysis and critical thinking should you be able to demonstrate in the case study / interview to get past the round?
What level of evidence should you have to back your assumptions for the financial projections? For example, if you assumed x% growth of revenue driver 1 in 2021 and y% growth of revenue driver 2 in 2021, do you have to be able to back the x% and y% with concrete citing from research reports / transcripts etc? If so, how would you go about hammering down these assumptions?
