Sample cover letter for Internship position at morgan stanley


credit risk analyst

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am a second year undergraduate student studying Business and Management. I am writing this letter to apply for a position of Credit Risk summer analyst at Morgan Stanley. My previous placements and work experience have well equipped me with a multitude of skills and would like to enhance them at your company. I am sure that an internship at Morgan Stanley’s demanding yet encouraging and diverse environment will motivate me further to succeed within the specialism of Risk Management.

Morgan Stanley, as one of the leading financial services corporation, has established itself on a worldwide scale. It is a corporation that places great emphasis on diversity within the firm as well as diversity with clients. A firm as big as Morgan Stanley, and one that takes pride in the uniqueness and creative workforce, is a firm that will enable me to develop both as an individual and as an employee.

As I progressed independently, I gained my first work experience in a financial environment whilst in high school. While working at the Risk and Fraud department at PaymentSense in London, UK’s largest merchant services provider, I was shown how credit risk analysis provides extensive exploration to, firstly, avoid and then deal with potential fraud that may damage both the customers and the company. I became aware that analytical precision, as well as critical thinking is vital to an organization’s impact on customer protection and loyalty; aspects that Morgan Stanley places great importance on.

Furthermore, my skills in communication have aided me greatly when it comes to understanding financial matters on a global scale. I speak four languages fluently: French and English and have participated three years at international Model UN conferences often contributing in the Economic Council. Demonstrating a diverse background, both personally and professionally, as well as combining it with my dedication and hard work, will prove to be beneficial while working in a high paced, creative and global environment.

If my abilities meet the needs of a position, I would greatly appreciate an opportunity of speaking with you personally at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time.

Yours Sincerely,
