Hey guys, I have an interview coming up at a hedge fund, I already completed the case study section, so I guess my question is if I already completed the case study what should I expect for the interview? Do you guys think I should be expected to present my case study or will they likely just ask me questions on it? Also I am assuming that the case study will be the focus of the interview and the stock pitch I have prepared aside from the case study may be secondary, is that fair? Thanks for any and all help.

From what I've read online and have been told by people who work in HFs it will be centred around the case study. Just out of interest could you briefly outline your case study?

Not super structured basically just gave me a company and told me to provide my thoughts and build a model etc.

Also if it will be mostly focused on case study and that's done how should I prepare? Just look over case study and be ready for potential questions I think they may ask?

Yes I'd do that, prepare for ANYTHING they could ask. And if you don't know its better to be honest about it than try and BS your way through it, they can spot that from a mile off.

Awesome thanks, I don't have a ton of time before and the way I look at it I have three areas I could prepare on (behavioral, stock pitch, case study). So you think my time would best be spent on case study out of the three? Also I have no idea what type of questions I can expect, does anybody know of a thread on this or could somebody provide insight? Thanks for the help.

I was also wondering if they want you to bring copies in with you? Or do you have to remember everything.

Not sure if this helps since it wasn't at a HF, but I interviewed with a BB for an IB position and had to prepare a case study. When I went in for the interview, I presented the case study to a VP and an associate. After my presentation, they asked me questions related to the case study and the were pretty technical. I then interviewed with some more of the team.

Did they tell you to prepare a presentation or is that implied? I have not been told I should expect to present the case study.
