business analyst

Dear Sir/Madame

My name is Linh Nhat Nguyen and I am currently a graduate student at the University of East Anglia, UK with a concentration in Accounting and Finance. I am interested in pursuing a quantitative researcher at your firm, and have attached my resume and background information below.

At the University of East Anglia, I took courses about probability, stochastic calculus and option pricing where I learned various financial models and quantitative methods used in the finance industry. Even though I was a student of business school, I was ranked as one of top students in the classes of further mathematics and further financial mathematics. For the last summer, I have interned as an equity research analyst at the Da Nang securities company. In this capacity I conducted an extensive analysis on macro and micro economics and made buy/hold/sell recommendations on those companies that fulfilled a low risk/high return discipline. As a result, I recognized the difference between the mathematics and finance allowing me making the financial models more practical.

Given my background in accounting and finance and my communication and analytical skills, I am a particular good fit for the investment analyst intern at your firm. I am impressed by your culture and your investment philosophy, hence, I look forward to joining and contributing to your firm.

I would welcome an opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you and learn more about Vietnam investment group at your earliest convenience. I can be reached at 0935226505 or via email at linhnhatnguyen92@gmail.com. Thank you very much for your time and your consideration.

Best regards
