going for an interview this week for a trade support position within the Fixed Income Prime Brokerage dept at a major firm here in NYC.



Any advice on what to research and be prepared for?



I've been researching the business in general, repos, rev. repos, and swaps. Any advice?

evidently this may not be an appropriate question for retail stockbrokers.

I am barely conversant in prime brokerage issues, but I'd be willing to give a try to whatever you're wanting to know.

Actually that's probably a big part of the problem.  Most of us retail fellas don't really deal with PRIME much...

But isn't one of your main themes what a professional you are?

Nope.  That would be you trying to put words in my mouth again.



Then again, I'm professional enough to admit I'm out of my area of expertise, rather than saying..."Well, I really don't know anything about it, but I'll be happy to answer your questions...."

You know, come to think of it you have never indicated that you were a professional.


My bad.
