AM Quant Strategies / Modeling?

Hi Monkeys, long-time lurker, first-time poster here. I've got an interview coming up for an analyst position with a quant group at a large AM firm. I have a quantitative background (math / physics) but no experience in finance. I'm preparing for the interview as best I can but I'd like a little guidance. Any suggestions for what models, terms, and strategies I should be studying to prepare? Thanks.
