Essential terminology explained for the interview process

With the application and interview process in full swing we thought it would be useful to give you a glossary of financial terms.

During your interviews you may come across some terminology. We tried to outline the likely examples with some clear explanations.

Like all professionals, bankers sometimes like to make things sounds more complicated than they really are!

If you're still struggling with terminology please give us a call, we're happy to help.

Make sure you're full informed ahead of your interviews, check out our Financial Markets Roundup.
