Dear Ms. Doe:
I am a senior economics major at Smith College very interested in the investment banking analyst
program at Barclays Capital. At the September 28th information session at Amherst College I was
struck by first year analyst Gregg Casale’s description of Barclays as a global team that prides
itself on its ability to do things differently while delivering exceptional financial solutions for
clients. With my finance experience, teamwork, and problem solving skills, I believe I am well
paired to the analyst program and to Barclays Capital’s culture.
As a summer analyst at Morgan Stanley this past summer, I prepared pitch books and analyses for
client presentations and built financial models for leveraged buyouts and credit reviews. Through
participating in deal calls as part of the Financial Institutions Group team, I gained an
understanding of how client needs are best met under the pressure of time. Currently as treasurer
of Smith’s Student Government Association, I administer financial transactions for 120+ student
organizations and oversee a $500,000 budget, responsibilities which draw on my attention to
detail and ability to balance multiple priorities.
I’m attracted to the firm’s practice of bringing together a flat hierarchy of diverse team members,
each with the opportunity to make a difference through creative problem solving, as this is how
I’ve discovered I work best. Barclays Capital’s commitment to service projects such as mentoring
at risk students and serving food
in local shelters appeals to me to given my volunteer experience with our local Big Sisters
program. The firm’s client centered philosophy and global market position combined with the
opportunity to contribute to the community make Barclays Capital an exciting place to build my
I welcome the opportunity to talk with you about my qualifications, experience, and interest in the
analyst program at Barclays Capital. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to
hearing from you.
