What will you be asked if you interview with an investment bank, either as a graduate or as an intern?

We’ve updated our list of sample interview questions for you (the new entries have ‘NEW’ written alongside them). The list below has been sent to us by eFinancialCareers readers. We can’t totally verify the questions’ authenticity: this is what people are telling us they’ve encountered.

If you’ve also interviewed with an investment bank, or other financial services firm, send us your questions (Editor@eFinancialCareers.com) – and how you answered, and we’ll add them to our list (100% anonymously, of course).

If you want to see some other examples of interview questions asked by various banks in previous years, click here, or here, or here. 

Click the links below to see what’s allegedly been asked at each bank and what students say they’ve said in response. We’ll be adding to this list over the coming weeks, so keep checking this page for updates.
