When interviewing at an investment firm, a job seeker will be asked more than "what are your strengths and weaknesses?" You will be expected to demonstrate your investment knowledge and will most likely be asked some technical questions. These will vary based on the position, but here are some examples of investment specific interview questions:

  • What is fixed income?
  • What is your investment strategy?
  • What is the current exchange rate between USD and EUR?
  • What was the treasury rate last Tuesday?
  • What is your current outlook on the market?
How would you explain mutual funds to someone ignorant on the subject?

Some broader interview questions that investment firms may ask include:
  • Give me an example of a time you failed and how did you respond?
  • Why are you interested in this company?
  • Give me an example of how you have worked well under pressure.
  • What makes you a good fit for this position?
For an interview, it is important to show that you are prepared and have done your research. Spend some time researching interview questions and familiarizing yourself with terminology associated with the position.
