I am interviewing for a role as a Fixed income index Analyst and would be grateful if someone can give me more color on what I should be expecting in the interview and How I should prepare.
The role encompasses the full lifecycle of index product development, from market research, prototyping, client validation, product development.
-Extensive modeling of index methodologies in order to produce index constituent list and weights, and to back-test results.
I had some experience working in the asset mgmt industry with good knowledge of finance. My questions are:
1. What's the programming skill it would be required for this position? I'm using EXCEL/VBA/SQL from time to time and still learning Python.
2. What're the daily functions for this position?
Also for the technical questions like above, I have no idea. Can someone please share more insights for this position? Thank you!!
