"A definite game-changer for me." - Incoming Summer Analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch



My name is Aurelian Tran. I’m an ex-Financial Analyst who has spent the last four years working for world-class investment banks and hedge funds, including Goldman Sachs, Lansdowne Partners, Lazard, and Goetzpartners.
Over the past few years, I’ve done 60+ interviews, received multiple offers from the best investment banks in the world, and personally interviewed dozens of candidates for my former employers, including Goldman Sachs and Lazard. 

And here is what I can tell you:

To be successful in investment banking interviews (which are ruthlessly selective) you need to master these 3 things

Success factor #1: You need to be able to anticipate most interview questions in advance

Even if you’re very smart, how do you expect to answer confidently if we ask you a question you never had before? If we ask you “Can you run me through an accretion/dilution analysis” during a last round interview at Goldman Sachs and you can’t answer, what do you think will happen? 

That’s right, you likely won’t get the offer. The only way to prevent this unfortunate scenario is to know what interview questions to expect, so that you know what to work on.

Success factor #2: Your ability to master technical knowledge, including critical financial concepts such as Enterprise Value, DCF Valuation, TMV, IRR, LBO modelling, and many more.

It's easy to find lists of investment banking interview questions online. 

But the truth is: memorizing 400+ interview questions is completely useless if you don't genuinely understand the critical financial concepts recruiters will be testing you on. 

Why? Because for every “classic” interview question, such as “run me through a DCF”, there will be unpredictable follow-up questions and unique variants of questions that you won't be able to predict. 

Understanding the underlying financial concepts that are tested during interviews gives you the flexibility to tackle a near infinite supply of questions, because if you truly know what you're talking about, you can talk forever.

If you don't understand these core concepts, you won't last long in the most selective interviews. You can't fake it. You have to know it. Recruiters use very specific techniques to weed out candidates that are faking it.

Success factor #3: The way you present your story, by answering fit questions like “Tell me about yourself” or “Walk me through your resume”. 

The #1 factor that drives interview success is NOT technical preparation, but the way you present your story, by answering fit questions like “Tell me about yourself” or “Walk me through your resume”

Countless talented candidates are rejected by top IBs just because they fail to present themselves with clarity and confidence. 

At the end of the day, top investment banks are NOT looking for financial nerds who can build a 12-layer LBO model in 45 minutes, but ramble for hours when we ask them “tell me about yourself”...

They are looking for smart, driven, high-potential individuals who are eager to learn and who would be a good fit in their team.

And if you fail to make a strong impression during the first 2 minutes of your interview, you won’t make it to the next round.

To help students perform at the highest level during investment banking interviews, we decided to create a full online course to help you: 

  • Anticipate most interview questions in advance (fit + technical questions). Get access to a database of 125+ commonly asked, real-world interview questions sourced from Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Evercore, Lazard, and more. 
  • ​For each question, we provide examples of high-performing answers so that you know exactly what works, and what recruiters expect to hear from you.
  • Know exactly what to answer to any technical question by mastering foundational financial concepts. 267+ pages of in-depth prep content that will make you bullet-proof for interviews. No question will surprise you once you possess this critical knowledge.
  • Know precisely how to tell your story to convince recruiters of your value within minutes. Learn how to answer common fit questions (such as "Why investment banking") flawlessly.

Who made this course?

This course was made by active and former investment banking professionals from top-tier firms, including Lazard, Goldman Sachs, and Perella Weinberg Partners. 

It was made by Associate-level investment bankers who have a very precise idea of what types of questions are asked during IBD interviews, and of what is expected from candidates both on the fit and technical side. 

Collectively, we have interviewed hundreds of candidates for our current and former employers, and have been through multiple rounds of interviews ourselves at some of the most selective investment banks in the world.

The content that you will find in this course is made to give you exactly what you need to succeed in investment banking interviews. Nothing less, nothing more.

Summer Internship offer at Credit Suisse

"Coming from a non-target school, I’ve always struggled to get interviews at the top banks. I’ve found the networking and cold emailing modules very helpful in solving that problem: I got 5 interviews within 3 weeks after starting the programme, and ended up accepting a Summer Internship offer in macro research at Credit Suisse. Thanks for all the help."

James T.

M&A Analyst Intern at TMT Investment Banking Boutique

“I landed my first internship in M&A at a top boutique in London. All other candidates had a background way superior to mine, and I had never been through any interview process before. I can't stress enough how this programme helped me secure this internship. Thank you!”

Guillaume C.

M&A Internship at Baird

"After three weeks of applications using the referral system, I secured an internship in M&A at Baird. Extremely grateful for the help. I will continue to use this strategy to find job opportunities moving forward."

Anonymous candidate

Off-Cycle Analyst at Capital Group

“This guide was tremendously helpful. I learned so much in this guide that I really wish I discovered it before. I’ve been struggling to get interviews for months, and just by applying a few networking tips provided in the third module, I managed to land 4 interviews at major investment funds in only one week!”

Our results are unique and reflect our experience in finance and in-depth understanding of the recruitment landscape in this industry. Our results do not hold any promise of success for you. The results you will achieve depend on many factors, including, but not limited to: your motivation, dedication, ability, experience, discipline, and personal values. We cannot guarantee that you will achieve the results you expect. In order to achieve these types of results, you need to invest a significant amount of effort and work that most people are not prepared to put in. Even with a great amount of work, there is no guarantee that you will achieve these results, as other factors such as luck, for example, can also play a role in recruitment processes.
