Just got an email out of the blue asking if I wanted to interview for a PWM position on Dallas (not quite equities, but...) Couple of questions:
1. How has Goldman's PWM business grown lately? A lot of the "rank these firms!" threads I've dug up via search tell me conflicting things. 2007-era threads tell me GS/MS are tops. Later on I hear UBS/CS are becoming elite, and then I hear JPM is the only place to be. Help? Not concerned about "prestige" as much as the level of company support and AUM.
1b. For that matter, what is the PWM equivalent term of "AUM"? Wealth under management / WUM?
2. I'm an "experienced" professional interviewing for an analyst role (FA) - what will they focus more on, my fit or my knowledge of the industry?
Note that PWM is actually where I want to be, and I'm not just prestige-whoring on GS.
