At some technical interviews at banks, they know you aren't from a finance background / doing a finance degree so they won't start off asking *that* technical questions. I had an AC at Citi and the people from non-finance backgrounds only got asked basic questions on global market trends whereas the finance people got asked specific questions on bond yields, company valuations etc.

From experience, even though I come from a finance background, the questions they asked were generally market questions e.g. what investment trends spark your interest right now? and then they probe further e.g. if I say the last quarter of 2018 saw a decline in global markets, they might ask "why is that so?" and if I mention more technical things like interest rates, they will prob further again. From what I can see, most banking technical interviews tend to ask questions about markets because it's the fairest way to assess non-finance / finance people as you could learn about those things from the news.
