Sorry for the new account. I am starting fresh and I want to protect my identity, I am going to be using this profile going forwards.

I have an interview next week at a L/S Deep Value hedge fund and am trying to figure out what all I should be prepared for. The biggest curve ball for me is that its focus is OUTSIDE the US, so I am spending the next week reading up on the markets abroad and a lot of the relative valuation stuff for the macro aspect and a lot of the current events and political issues. I also am screening CapIQ for specific companies abroad to start digging into a bit so I don't feel ill prepared.

I know there are a couple guys on here who work at HFs and I have talked to before on my old profile, so hopefully one of them find this.

My background is atypical and I really don't want to give out details publicly. I am not from a target school, don't have over a 3.5, and am not from the traditional banking route

You find their holdings yet and try working your way backwards through a few of their investments? Could help you narrow down the search process and construct a small pitch. Looking abroad multiplies the opportunities, but also the issues in finding some gold.

Curious to hear how you got the opportunity. Through networking?

Ya this is the approach I have been taking.. I have their broad thesis down and know the big drivers for the long positions and short positions... I am just trying to see what I did or didn't think of. I am moreso focusing on the broad markets abroad and to do some screening to find some opportunities
