Dear Ms Ryman
Re: Investment Analyst, Ref. no. 2834
I wish to apply for the position of Investment Analyst as advertised on seek.com.au.
Over the past two years, I have successfully researched investment products, prepared presentations and developed client relationships as a Program Sales Trader with Arnold and Sons. My considerable achievements at the company include being sole agent for the AU$3b acquisition of Jones Witherspoon and brokering US$15b hedge fund for an affiliate of Global Partners.
I am a goal-oriented professional with highly developed spreadsheet and analytical skills. In my current job, I have successfully produced a number of budgeting and forecasting programs and repayment spreadsheets. I also work closely with my investment manager to collate and analyse market data to provide market-based growth information. In addition to this, I have efficiently implemented Access-based programs for tracking new product development.
Since 2004, in my voluntary position as the Publicity Organiser with Women in Finance (WIF), I have honed my communication and event management skills, and developed my network of associates in the financial business environment.
I am highly organised and am proficient with computer applications including Reuters, Bloomberg, BondEdge and Hyperion. Having taken language classes in university and during my professional career, I am fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese and Malay and am very comfortable doing business in Asian countries if required.
I would welcome the opportunity for an interview to further discuss my suitability for this position.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
