    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Close Brothers in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    1st interview was 1:1 with Director, and then with a panel of MDs.
    Most of the questions were CV based, asking about my deal list with some basic technical questions about valuation.
