    i reached phase 3.
    the questions revolve around shares and stocks and other financial basics.
    i was asked:
    name few indian companies?
    why do u say they are indian?
    what is index?
    what is CDS?
    why capital IQ?
    i answered all of them correct and my interview went quite well but they selected just 1 candidate out of 6.
    but reaching phase 3 is also not an easy task. all the best to all the aspirants.

    Interview process starts with an easy aptitude test (MAT level), if you clear this there is an HR round with basic finance questions (bonds, stocks, hedge funds etc.) depending upon the kind of profile applied for. After the HR round there is a core finance test and subsequently 2 more rounds of interviews.

    I applied online - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    there was a written aptitude test which consisted of basic information about yourself, education and questions on logical reasoning, quantitative and english passage.
    please time yourself accordingly for the test as it is too lengthy and you would only be given 30 mins to complete it.
    also dont stress too much on questions that you're not able to solve as youl lose time.
