Dear Recruiting Manager

I am excited to apply for the Summer Analyst Investment Management position I learned from

on-campus information session. I am confident that my previous internship experiences provided

me a good start for this attractive position.

I will complete my double bachelor degrees in Mathematics of Finance and Risk Management,

and Economics from the University of Michigan in 2017. While these two degrees provide me

with a strong background in analyzing portfolio and using vital risk analysis concepts.

I experienced two outstanding summer internships as an Associate Risk Manager at Minsheng

Banking Corp., LTD in 2013 and 2015. I handled market risk analysis for derivatives, including

CTA, margin trading and short selling, and private fund. I completed five risk assessment reports.

And I wrote comments on more than 20 reports to list material risk. These projects allowed me to

develop and refine my portfolio and risk analysis skills while drafting risk assessment report and

reporting material risk to MD.

Although the enclosed resume is limited to outline my education and experience thoroughly, I

would appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate in an interview my knowledge employee

training and development, initiative, and risk control skills.

Thank you very much for considering me for the above mentioned vacancy. Meetings to discuss
