Sample cover letter for Internship position at JP Morgan

POSITION:

Asset Management Global Wealth Management Summer Analyst

To whom it may concern,

I am a final year student studying towards a BSc (Hons) in _____ at The University of ___ writing to apply for the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Global Wealth Management Summer Analyst position. Researching J.P. Morgan, I was especially impressed by the company’s goals with regards to corporate responsibility. It is very admirable of a company to take initiatives to strengthen communities and a commitment for environmental sustainability. I am keen to gain a deeper insight into a career as a wealth management analyst to help clients towards their financial goals but also uphold practices with integrity. Thus, I have decided to apply to J.P. Morgan to learn these best practices which will no doubt serve positively in my career trajectory.

I believe that both my educational and professional backgrounds have prepared me well for the challenges that are faced in this industry. Last Summer, I gained a three months’ internship in Shanghai at St. James’s Place Wealth Management, a FTSE 100 company. I learned a tremendous amount during my placement in areas of investments, insurance, asset preservation trusts and pension schemes among others. I was expected to be independent from the beginning while multitasking effectively in a fast-paced environment. This developed my time-management skills where I devised a straightforward and systematic system. I also shared this insight with other interns and eventually I was promoted as senior intern within a month into the internship. I was responsible for giving basic introduction to new incoming interns, delegate tasks appropriately and evaluate progress to maximize efficiency. Not only that, I was engaged in financial report writing for clients which were sent to the headquarters in the UK for business assurance review. My attention for detail was noted and I received consistent positive reviews from business assurance for producing high quality reports. Furthermore, I also took the initiative to enhance the existing report templates to incorporate automatic word repetition functionality. This eventually reduced much of the errors in the reports than before as well as reduced the time to complete it.

Finally, a career in wealth management is characterized by helping clients reach their financial goals in the most effective way. I believe wealth management is fundamental in one’s financial stability and I would welcome the opportunity to learn more about this field with J.P. Morgan. Please do not hesitate to contact me for anymore additional information.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

__________
