HF Analyst InterviewSubscribe
I have an interview with a boutique HF for an equity research role. I have never worked in a HF, my only experience in investing was interning at a search fund when I was in college. Otherwise, my experience is mostly working in more technology focused roles. From what I can gather, they are only considering me because I have a very specific technical skill that that are looking for. I'm preparing for the interview now, and I have a few questions.
Technicals: I am in the process of preparing 3 stock pitches to have ready, and I've been working on the FRA, Corporate Finance, PM, and Equity parts of the CFA (taking level 1 in December anyway). What other things should I prepare?
Behavioral/Fit: I feel comfortable talking about why I like the role, and what about it I find intriguing. My only concern here is that I clearly don't come from an investing background, and there is no way for me to BS my way through that. Is it a good strategy just to be completely honest about this and say I'm willing to learn?
