Sample cover letter for Internship position at Moelis & Company

POSITION:

Investment Banking Summer Analyst

GOT THE JOB? Yes

My name is ______ and I am currently junior studying economics and statistics at _____  After being introduced to your firm through an informational session hosted by your firm at my university, I was thoroughly impressed with what I learned about Perella Weinberg Partners’ global reach and entrepreneurial spirit. I am interested in pursuing a Summer Analyst position at your firm, and have enclosed my resume and background information below.

While not necessarily having spent the entirety of my career developing skills fit for the financial sector, the values I have developed outside of business enterprises are those that any investment bank can value. Whether I was tasked with providing legal consultation to over thirty clients per day in multiple languages or challenged with restoring a live radio broadcast to airwaves during my first solo engineering shift, I am not unaccustomed to having to produce successful results and solve problems in high-pressure environments. More recently, having spent a summer at __________, a private wealth management firm, and now currently working at ____________, a hedge fund based in ___________, I have been lucky to be able to hone my skills in financial qualitative and quantitative analysis, working in roles tasked from analyzing client portfolios to performing due diligence and market research on companies in a variety of industries. Given my background in buy-side investment and wealth management as well as my track record of succeeding in a variety of fields, I believe I would be a particularly good fit for the Summer Analyst position at Perella Weinberg Partners. I am impressed by Perella Weinberg’s core advisory practices and the significant responsibilities given to Summer Analysts, and I look forward to joining and contributing to your firm.

Enclosed for your reference is a copy of my resume. I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Perella Weinberg Partners at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at __________. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

____________
