I have a fixed income SA phone interview with a top-5 AM (think Fidelity, PIMCO, BlackRock, etc.) coming up soon.
My question is how would I go about impressing the interviewer with some knowledge which isn't expected of me? If it were an equity interview, I'd pitch a few good stocks, but bonds (beyond the basics) are somewhat of a terra incognita for me.
It's also important to find the right balance: I could mention some difficult concept and get grilled, because the interviewer knows 10x more than I do.
Any personal experience of being an interviewer/interviewee is more than welcome.
tl;dr How do I stand out in a FI AM interview?
