Dear Sir or Madam,

I am applying to the position as Analyst in the Investment Banking Division at *******. I learned of the opportunity through your online posting on the Company’s website, and feel my skills and background are a good match for that position. I have a strong interest in finance and markets and I am looking for a job which is strictly related to these areas, especially at a company like ******. Some friends of mine are, or have been, employees at the firm, so I had the opportunity to know your business closely and to be exposed to ******’s culture: I admire the diversity of people, as well as the strong commitment to provide continual learning and international experience.

I am currently completing a nine month internship at XXXXXX, in the Private Banking Division. I joined the team last February, working directly with senior Bankers. That is an extremely enriching experience, as I am involved both in relationship and investment activities, improving my knowledge of the investment process and operating with a high degree of autonomy, especially managing follow-up activities and communications with various asset class specialists throughout the Bank. I also had opportunity to collaborate with the ZZZZZZ ZZZZZZ Group, a team providing family owned companies with Investment Banking services, and I worked on some deals to manage liquidity generated by rights issues and mergers. I attend meetings with clients and prospects, sometimes explaining details on investment instruments like mutual funds and structured products. I demonstrated excellent communication skills and, above all, the ability to work with accuracy and attention to details, even under pressure and respecting deadlines.

I hope you could take the time to consider my curriculum vitae; should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your time and attention.
Yours sincerely,
Me
