Hellman & Friedman London interview

Anyone been through this process and willing to share what the process entailed?
Also any thoughts on the firm in general re. culture, reputation, work life balance etc.

2 initial case study rounds (45 mins each) and then a 10-12 hour live case study on-site (starts at 6.30 am ends at 6 pm), don't know how they're doing that with COVID at the moment. Very little interest in your deal experience, motivation etc if you have a solid resume and give a good 1-line answer

Thanks for the insight! It's so helpful to get answers like this, and I really appreciate it
Were the case studies like consulting case studies, or more financially technical?

Purely commercial. They do also some more unconvential "cases" to assess purely your logical reasoning - never seen anything like it before at other funds. Not going to share what it exactly was but they're hyper-logical to almost philosphical questions. Bit uncomfortable at the time but if you keep calm you'll be fine and make it through

You are aware they just went through interviews for 2 additional associates?
