I have an interview on Friday that includes a finance quiz. They say everything is included and you don’t really need background knowledge. Still want to know something. What should I look at?

I am in GPS and they know that my background isn’t in finance and they are looking at me for technical and general client facing skills. I just want to do some basic reading in the next couple days to ensure that I can catch onto the basics.

Did u google for the finance quiz based on company name?

It’s a relatively small fintech startup. I looked it up but nothing exists.

Tried glassdoor?

Realistically just learn how to discount cash flows.

Look through basic accounting questions as well

Time value of money, DCF, what’s the fundamental accounting equation, how does depreciation affect the 3 financial statements
