    Global Markets Summer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings (London, England).

    Interview

    Stage 1: online tests (verbal and numerical I think), pretty standard.

    Stage 2: following screening after the online tests, I was invited to do a 30 minute telephone interview with two members of staff (non-senior I think). Pretty simple really, they asked the standard competency questions related to team work and situational stuff, commercial awareness of events in the markets, and then threw in a logic question: "How many tube journeys are made by Nomura's London employees per day?", as well as 49x49. Really nice guys and very relaxed.

    Stage 3: A few weeks later I was invited to do an assessment centre along with feedback on the telephone interview. There were 4 of us in the assessment centre, and we had 4 interviews including a case study. To start off we had 45 minutes to individually analyse a research paper. It was quite a large and complex paper, so that was quite an intense 45 minutes. We then had 4 interviews, one of which was our pitch on the case study. My first guy was an exec in emerging market credit sales and was really relaxed and nice and we got along really well, and was a solely competency-based interview. My second interview was my case study one with a VP in structuring. This was much more technical and he made sure that I fully understood everything I was mentioning with questions such as "Through what assets would you buy volatility?" to which I answered options or swaps. We then discussed options and their impact on the currency markets and volatility, and why they might have certain impacts on the ECB etc. As a physics student, he tried to help me answer, rather than expecting me to answer easily. Third was with the MD of GBP rates trading, and was very tough and he was stern, seeming quite bored by what I was saying. He asked me things like "What would I get if I added all the integers from 1 to 100?", "How would you invest £2m?", "How would you price a bond?" etc. The final guy was in EUR rates trading, and he spoke for most of the interview, while at the same time asking me what I think of certain things in the credit markets.

    I got a phone call from the EM credit sales guy the next day to congratulate me with an offer.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The first round was just behavior interview by HR. She asked about why Nomura why this division and other basic behavior questions. It was a phone interview and lasted half an hour.
    My suggestion is make sure you have fully prepared for the interview and treat it like animal day when you are networking with others.
