Dear Hiring Manager,
I am writing to express my strong interest in the Equity Research Analyst role with Morgan Stanley. Given my successful tenure as an analyst at top-tier firms like Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan, combined with my CFA credentials, I believe I am well-positioned to excel in this capacity.
As demonstrated in the attached equity analyst resume, I have a proven 5-year track record of creating high-impact equity research and accurate financial models at respected banks. My recommendations have driven upwards of $50 million in annual trading activity for institutional investor clients. I possess a keen attention to detail along with a methodical approach to analyzing companies inside and out. For example, at Morgan Stanley, I maintained within the top 5% for EPS estimate precision out of 150 global analysts – showcasing my financial modelling acumen.
In addition, I have strong communication abilities, enabling me to convey complex insights into actionable guidance for clients. At JP Morgan I worked cross-functionally to execute IPOs and M&A deals valued at over $5 billion, fine-tuning my ability to present analysis and recommendations under tight deadlines.
In summary, as demonstrated in my background, I believe I can swiftly apply my financial modelling proficiency, valuation expertise and communication strengths to benefit Morgan Stanley’s equity research team and institutional investor base. I would welcome the opportunity to showcase my capabilities further through an interview. Please let me know if any additional information would be helpful. Thank you for your consideration.
