Prepare for your next investor relations interview

Regardless if you are interviewing with a corporation or a private equity fund, the interviewer will be looking to test your communication and presentation abilities as well as your familiarity with the market, competitors, investor base, and investment parameters related to size, strategy / style, and sector. In addition, having a strong background in finance and being able to answer technical questions about accounting or valuation are also crucial. All of these skills are critical to succeeding in an investor relations role.

 

As an investor relations professional, you would be expected to actively build strategies which will allow you to interface with your investor base and deliver your firm’s messaging as effectively as possible. This includes attending roadshows, conferences, as well as meeting sell-side analysts and investors. In addition, there is quite a bit of independent work involved in preparing presentations, drafting reports, as well as creating and presenting simplified financial models to aid prospective and current investors.

 

The ability to be impactful with your communication is crucial as well, as you will be expected to influence both senior internal stakeholders and investors. The interviewer may ask questions like “how would you manage sharing negative feedback from the investors to the senior management team” or “tell me a time when you have had to communicate with or manage an active investor?”
