What do you think makes a “good” investment?
There are a few key areas you should focus on when talking about your investing strategy. If you haven’t already talked about the firm’s strategy, you can draw on some of the principles they have to talk about what makes a good investment. To answer this question, you should explain how you would think about the market surrounding the investment: competition, stability of cash flows, growth potential, and the caliber of the management team. These are some of the major ones, and you should feel free to add other criteria specific to the firm you’re interviewing with.
The stability of cash flows is essential to protect your investment, but the last two criteria are important to highlight since this is what drives most of the returns in private equity. Growth potential will be impacted by the market you’re in and the strength of the competition, so you want to emphasize that you want to find companies with some sort of differentiation in the market and with competitors who aren’t doing the same thing in the same areas. You also want to be able to identify multiple levers for growth, so your eggs aren’t all in one basket. For the management team, this is important to evaluate because strong management will be able to execute your growth plan, while a team that isn’t aligned with you (both in the growth plan and financially) won’t be incentivized to help your firm realize growth.
