    Global Risk Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Scotiabank in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    This was a very market focused interview. You had to know the market inside out to ace this interview and be following current affairs, not very technical on the finance aspects. 1. Choose any industry and tell me where it is going, this is basically pitch the market. For e.g. i chose the oil industry and if the market is doing well so will the oil industry. You want to talk about Housing starts, ISM figures, t-bond rates, unemployment rate, gold, exchange rates, plus many other things. it does not matter if you are right, but you have to show that you understand the market and have a firm opinion. There is also the Canadian market, the US Market and the world market. May be unnecessary to do all, because both canadian and the world are highly tied to the US. 2. What are the risks for banks going forward - i talked about expansion and the problem in Europe with debt and credit crisis, i knew figures off hand. 3. Do you agree with the bailout of banks by the US during the financial crisis. 4. What do you think the government could have done better during the financial crisis. 5. I gave a view of the market going down, then i was asked do i see any indicators showing the market could be going up. There are always some indicators showing its going up, just look for them.
