Dear Hiring Managers,
Having more than four years of extensive experience in the finance industry I am confident I would be an excellent fit for the role. What's more, if given the opportunity, I will be coming to you and your team with a pro-active approach, strong attention to detail and accuracy, and the determination to achieve or surpass all results and objectives.
I am the University of Toronto graduate with a bachelor's degree in Economics & Finance. Finishing the university with the highest results possible, I was also one of three individuals to win the annual Academic Excellence Award. Besides that, I was involved in multiple extracurricular activities, for instance, FinTech Society, Psychology Society, and Swimming Club throughout the years and I served as a Vice President of the FinTech Society from 2013 to 2014. This tremendous experience has helped to develop excellent leadership skills and taught me how to work and collaborate with people from various cultures and countries.
On top of my education, my career history serves as an excellent evidence of my industry experience. I worked as an Equity Analyst at Northern Trust Corporation for four years. Not only I was ranked as the #1 Equity Analyst at the company for exceeding all business targets but I was also part of the team that developed and implemented a new strategy which led to a decrease in costs by 12% and increase in profitability by 35%. Furthermore, I spent most of my work time analyzing financial statements and reports, identifying and evaluating potential investment opportunities, monitoring the performance of the investments, and developing detailed financial forecasts.
Last but not least, I am a Chartered Financial Analyst offering exceptional critical thinking skills and the significant ability to work and perform well under pressure. I am a native Norwegian speaker with a proficiency in English, basic knowledge of Chinese, and the experience with various important industry software programs, such as Worden TC2000, eSignal, Tradingview, TrendSpider, and NinjaTrader. I believe I could be a great contribution to your company and would, therefore, like to learn more about the role.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
