Very Easy Interview

Valuation Analyst Interview

Valuation Analyst
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in October 2012.

Interview Details – Dropped Resume for On Campus interview. Was invited for the interview. The interviewer was a senior manager. The interviewer went over my resume asked questions what I did here. why finance, why valuation.

Interview Question – Very casual interview and then walk me through valuing a soda company. how would you calculate WACC, cost of equity, forecasting, beta. what do you think cost of debt is? On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your valuation skills.

My advice: know your valuation concepts, understand finance concepts.
