    No the question is related to financial markets and private equity. Thus, take out all of the entrepreneurial startups etc - and go into the mindset that you are a fund manager for a hedge fund with $100MM capital that invests within equities, commodities, credit, OTC, etc etc. No personal expenditure such as buying a yacht etc etc.
    out of interest, if you had a choice between those 2 paths, which one would you take? personally if i had 100mm id enter the entertainment industry with friends, try go international (15 cities)..only then diversify into financial advisory, consultancy & venture capital. Not a fan of commodities, credit, OTC etc trading.

    I would say the entrepreneurship route is quite risky but obviously the higher risk is rewarded with higher returns.

    I was just interested to see what people on this forum would do if they were fund managers (who obviously can't undertake such things as starting an entertainment company). When they are interviewing in the future with GS, MS, JPM, CS etc.. and they get asked this question, they'll be kicking themselves they didn't contribute properly to this forum.

    I assume ppl interested in IBD wont be asked such questions right? Would saying which area you'd focus on in equities and OTC but then mentioning that HF isnt something which interests you be a reasonable answer or would you still be expected to have a much better indepth grasp?

    No no, you will definitely be asked this. I have had 3 interviews and 3 offers, and each company asked this question. With regard to knowledge or how in depth you should go - I am not sure - I started off being vague then most of them asked further questions and started to probe at my reasoning. I think you should always mention diversification, then relate the asset classes that you want to be invested in to some recent news article, such as going short on the Euro due to the issues in Greece at the minute and sovereign debt. This shows you are on top of the news and can formulate strategies around it.

    If you're invested in it, then get the interweb too that increases the value of your holding, which will increase again in a few days.

    No?
