    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackRock (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was fast tracked to the assessment centre after not getting the role that I originally applied for. It consisted of 2 back to back 30 minute interviews each with two interviewers.
    The interviews were relaxed with motivational and competency based questions. There was also a technical "pop quiz" at the end of one of them which weren't too difficult, I did get a couple out of 6 questions wrong though.

    Interview Questions

    • CV specific questions, what is going on in the markets that blackrock should be aware of? What is the current BoE base rate? What is the ftse100 trading at? Name two other indexes. What is a basis point? Difference between fund and etf? What is a db and dc pension fund?   Answer Question
