I've always wondered what the best way to answer a question like:
"what can you tell me about JP Morgan/GS/Nomura etc" or
"tell me 3 facts about Standard Chartered"
Do you just reel off simple facts such as "Nomura's share price is currently at 60p" and "JP Morgan's Q3 results showed a profti of £60million"
do you go into much more depth and have longer answers?
What can you tell me about company X, Y, Z? Watch

For the first question, would have an in depth answer, like how X bank has been trying to expand into emerging markets or its YTD performance (have they gone up in the M&A league tables; have they had fewer trading losses; or do they have any unique tech platforms etc). Or you could talk about a field they're really good in, like Macquarie's really good at Infrastructre M&A, or BarCap's really good at DCM and Syndicated Loans. Essentially pick something that makes them distinctive and talk about that.
For the second question would try to find facts that arent superficial, and require a little more than a quick search in google. For example, if you were going to mention the share price maybe read the FT or London Stock Exchange sites for some background on shareholder & investor issues the bank may be currently facing, and talk about that.Last edited by Zweihander; 29-11-2010 at 00:42.
