Thanks wallstreetoasis.com. Sorry for the gaffe!

Krakauer: This is the investment management branch of one of the largest fund managers in Europe. I think the guy knows that I'm a complete newbie but he wants to see that I can think clearly and that I have basic knowledge of asset management; mutual funds hedge funds etc. I'm doing a lot of research but I don't really know what to ask when it's my turn to ask questions. I'm still getting my thoughts together because I'm still blown away by the fact that I have an interview this Friday.

I need to know more about the company's products and I need to know more about "stand alone" products.

What I meant was "asset management" is too vague. The group probably covers everything: equities, fixed income, and alternatives (RE, PE, HF). So where should someone start?

Basic questions I got:

What would you do if someone gave you $10M to invest?

What are the advantages of investing in "insert product"?

What is an IRR/DCF?

Basic alpha/beta questions.

Have good questions prepared, find out what they specialize in and focus on that (or an area they are trying to get more involved in). The quicker you can sway the conversation into Q & A, the quicker you are in control. Have follow-ups for questions to show you're interested in them, but have them ad-hoc so they are relavent to what he just said.

Good luck.
