Question:

Describe regulatory developments in response to the financial crisis.

I talked about 'Asset Rotation.'

We cannot guarantee the authenticity of these questions nor the accuracy of the answers: they are what one candidate claims to have been asked by Brown Brothers Harriman and have not been verified by the bank. To visit our long list of all banks’ graduate interview questions in 2013, click here.
