Top Risk Analyst Interview Questions & How to Answer

Here are three of the most frequently asked risk analyst interview questions and how to answer them:

Question #1: Which strategy do you use for preparing risk analysis reports?

How to answer: This question is a practical question that the interviewer asks to gauge your ability to write a report. Start by confirming the importance of submitting a clear and detailed risk analysis report. Explain the outline you use to structure the document and how your strategy accurately conveys the content to the reader.

Question #2: When assessing the financial health of an organization, which factor do you believe is the most important?

How to answer: The interviewer is interested in your theoretical approach to financial assessments. Confidently explain the factor you choose and link it to your experience by providing examples of how you've depended on that factor in previous situations.

Question #3: How do you gather data, and how often do you update it?

How to answer: This is a question that the interviewer poses to determine whether you possess strong research skills and whether you revise your risk analysis when new information comes to light. Describe the data that you collect and its source. Your answer should reflect different updating frequencies for different data categories.

"What are the relationship between the three major financial statements"

1 Answers

Starts with the income statement, which brings you to net income. Net income is used to start the statement of retained earnings. Once retained earnings is calculated it is posted to the balance sheet in the equity section of the statement. Net income is also used to start the cash flows statement, which eventually gives you the change in cash flows that is posted in the asset section of the balance sheet. Less

Brain Teaser: A snail goes up 3 feet during the day and falls 1 foot at night. How long does it take him to go up 10 feet?

6 Answers

It doesn't say how long does it take him to make it ten feet up the wall. It just says, how long does it take for him to move up ten feet. That's 3 1/3 days (assuming equal movement throughout the day). Although he will have moved "up" ten feet, he will have also fallen back and will not be ten feet up the wall. Of course, you can also interpret it as the other answers suggest. Less

4 days and 16 hours 16 hours because by the end of the 4th day, it is 8 feet up on the wall and only needs to climb up 2 feet. Well, assuming that the snail travels 3 feets uniformly throughout the day, then it needs to travel an additional (2/3)*24 = 16 hours for it to climb up that extra 2 feet for it to be at the height of 10 feet. Less

4 days and 8 hours, assuming the day is 12 hours long and the night is 12 hours long. Almost agree with the >4 days answer above, however not quite agree with the (2/3)*24=16 hours part. The snail climbs 3 feet in the day, which would definitely be shorter than 24 hours. If we assume the day means 24/2=12 hours. on the 5th day, the snail took 2/3*12=8 hours to reach 10 feet. So that would be 4 days and 8 hours, assuming the day is 12 hours long and the night is 12 hours long. Less

WHAT IS YOUR AGE??? - A totally prohibited ground in HR context.

5 Answers

Look at the question: "What is your age?" That's different from "How old are you?" Answer accordingly. Less

I was asked this question by the CEO of a company during my telephonic interview. Even though I didn't ask, told me his age. That just seemed weird and not very professional. This wasn't Deloitte. Less

So many ways to find this information - in a, sort of, sneaky way. Has no-one noticed that now you not only being asked for your degrees but what year you obtained them - easy enough to extrapolate in the majority of cases... Less
