Sample cover letter for Internship position at Deutsche Bank


Sales & Trading

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am currently in my first year of study at XXXXXXXXX, pursuing a BSc degree in XXXXX. I am writing to apply for your 2015  Programme in the Corporate Banking & Securities (Markets) Division, which I heard about at XXXXX.

I am particularly drawn to Deutsche Bank’s dynamic environment with its wide range of products and its emphasis on teamwork and client needs.

I enjoy working in roles which involve diverse activities. As XXX of my school’s XXXX team, I had the opportunity to acquire leadership skills and experience in managing time and risk which increased my interest in the financial services industry. I learnt how crucial teamwork is for meeting deadlines (e.g. reports and presentations), and also how to negotiate deals with other teams for mutual business benefit. Most importantly, I learnt how to tailor business decisions and products to suit the needs of our clients.

My interest in financial markets and trading was sparked during my work shadowing in the Equities and FX Trading division at XXXX and I enjoyed learning some of the key aspects such as analysis/valuation of trades and need for frequent communication. I would like to further this knowledge and am keen to find out more about the different client solutions that Deutsche Bank offers, particularly those in equity capital markets.

As a presenter in my school’s XXXXX team, I needed to constantly adapt my monetary analysis based on changing macroeconomic news/data. I welcomed the challenges of the question-and-answer sessions throughout the competition and was always looking for ways to improve the quality of my analysis and presentation. My desire for challenges and self-improvement and interest in dynamic roles with diverse tasks drew me to the corporate banking/securities division. I believe my growing interest in macroeconomics and the performance of major economies/emerging markets would improve my understanding of financial markets and help me thrive in a trading environment

Thank you for your time and effort in reviewing my application. I am very excited by the programme that Deutsche Bank has to offer and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully,
