  • What's the difference between this guide and the Core Technicals Guide?

    The Core Technicals Guide focuses on the core set of corporate finance technical knowledge that's applicable to both sellside and buyside. This core set of knowledge includes (1) Financial Statements, (2) Enterprise Value & Equity Value, (3) Valuation Multiples, (4) DCF, (5) LBO, (6) M&A, and (7) Capital Structure.

This guide focuses on (1) Advanced LBO, (2) Business Model, and (3) Investing Acumen questions commonly asked in private equity and hedge fund interviews. They are specific for investing roles and therefore not usually asked in investment banking interviews. In this sense, the questions in this guide adds on top of the core set of technical knowledge.
