Portfolio Construction Analyst Interview Help!!

I have an interview for a BB in their PWM business for a portfolio construction analyst role. It's entry level for a team within the division. Won't be part of an advising team, but an internal team that helps advisers with asset allocation, quant analyses, manager selection, creating reports, etc. Apparently also very client facing.

Anyone have any experience to the kind of questions I should expect??

Goldman Sachs Asset Management FT interview for GLOBAL RISK & PORTFOLIO CONSTRUCTION (Originally Posted: 03/18/2014)


I will be having the interview for this position. I do not know much about the Global risk & Portfolio construction and I would love to hear more insights. It is in the Fixed INcome division in the Asset Management Group. BUt that is all I know. What should I expect from a 1st round. More technical based or behavioral based?
Thank you

Interview tomorrow: what to know for a portfolio construction role? (Originally Posted: 06/03/2015)

I am interviewing with someone from the portfolio construction team of a large AM firm and I have no idea what to expect. I didn't even submit an app to an opening but rather someone found my resume and I got contacted so I have no job description.

What are some qualities or skills to display during the phone interview?
What are some technicals to expect?
