First Java Interview for UK Investment Bank

Has anyone had an interview or work for an investment bank that could give me some good tips?

I have my first java interview for a UK investment bank this week. The role is a junior java developer. The job role is very vague as it says that the candidate should have good J2ee skills. Obviously, J2EE is a big field so do you think my skills, JSP/Sevlets/Spring/Hibernate/Acegi/CustomTags/JDBC, be good enough to qualify as a J2EE developer? I hold both a MSc and BCs in computer science.

I would be grateful for any advice for this interview!

I think you should study about the activities this bank does. If they have a web site, enter there in order to know what kind of Java systems they work with, and what you could do to really make the difference being theirs new employee.
If you have a friend there, you also could ask him what skills this bank is looking for.
