Modeling Test - Big 4 Infra?

Hi all,

 

I am late stages in an interview process with a big 4 Infrastructure Advisory team and the interviewer mentioned the next stage will be a 2 hour modelling test then an interview to discuss the analysis/recommendations.

 

I am from Australia and the interviews so far have not been in person due to the COVID environment would anyone have ideas on what to expect here? They do a lot of renewable energy deals (solar, hydro) so I have been looking at some examples but I am curious given the 2 hour time frame what would be expected?

 

I am imagining modelling a 20-30 year contract based on the $mw/h with debt sizing, debt metrics, and a sensitivity analysis  - perhaps a cash waterfall?

 

Any ideas? Thanks!

Yes, your guess is correct. I wouldn't necessarily say macro/VBA or sensitivity is included in a 2-hour modeling test though. Could be just a normal DCF, unless you previously have infra/renewable experience. 

If the infrastructure advisory group is with EY, take it if you get it. Deloitte and KPMG's infra advisory groups are...okay. PwC no.
