Intern Interview

Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gottex Fund Management in February 2011.

Interview Details – 2 round of interview. There was a little bit of technicals (bond math) and a lot of behavioral questions (why hedge funds vs mutual funds, describe what is event driven investing). Very friendly people and you will learn lots.

Interview Question – You need to know your bond math (duration, convexity) and how to hedge them and set up an arbitrage when you think it is mispriced   Answer Question

Risk Analyst Interview

Risk Analyst
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gottex Fund Management in April 2012.

Interview Details – The interview consists of three rounds. The first round was with an employee, the second the MD. I was asked some basic behavioral questions and then went over my resume. Their MD have a quite high preference to candidates with strong finance background even if the job doesn't actually require too much of it. The final round was a quantitative test followed by a short conversation, through which they tried to see if the candidates have true interest and passion in finance industry and risk management in particular.

Intern Interview

Intern
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Gottex Fund Management in April 2009.

Interview Details – There were 2 interviews, both via phone, since the company is based in London. The first was conducted with two people who worked in the office the selected intern would be working in, and the second conducted by the Head of the Hong Kong office, where the specific internship was to take place. The questions were generally related to "fit" and there were few questions that tested knowledge of the industry directly, though that was certainly necessary in answering the "why investment management" and "why Gottex" questions.
