The interviewer will tell you that there are no right or wrong answers and that they just want to get an idea of how you think. This is not entirely true as some answers are probably more right than others...
Now whether you’re looking to work in investments or want to invest your own money, what is very important is that you have a solid investment thesis with backing reasons. I have a few ideas of my own, and while I’m not suggesting I’m one of those amazing investors I speak of above, I suspect my lists may be of help.
I’m going to focus on the following alternative investments and cheque sizes:
- Angel Investing (£50k – £500k);
- Venture Capital (£500k - £5m);
- Growth Private Equity (£5m - £40m); and
- Distressed Private Equity (£5m - £40m).
Now even though there’s going to be nuances for each of the above stages, the fundamentals of investing always remain firm:
- Team with clear domain expertise.
- Clear problem and solution.
- Clear traction.
It’s important to remember that these are just some considerations and should not be regarded as investment advice.
