AllianceBernstein High Yield Research Analyst Interview

Hey everyone,

Applied for a high yield buy-side analyst role at AB and was contacted for a 30-minute HR interview.

Thinking ahead, but what type of questions should I expect if I make it through to an interview with someone on the high yield team? Do I need to know bond math backwards and forwards?

My current role is in valuations, so I'm strong there. We work with a lot of credit securities. I don't deal with convexities, duration, etc though.

Thanks in advance,

Would be surprised if you needed to know bond math for an analyst role. That's probably more reserved for a PM spot. I'd say focus on financial statement analysis, knowing statement of cash flows, important metrics to look at, and factors for investing in one bond over the other.
