Dear Sir / Madam
I am enclosing my application to join Wells Fargo as a commercial real estate analyst for an immediate start date. As a diligent and technical individual recently working as a European Portfolio Analyst Intern at Hines, this position stood out to me as an exciting opportunity to be trained in financially appraising and executing acquisitions and supporting transactions.
Having gained financial modelling skills constructing levered cash flows with sensitivity analysis, I now intend to develop these skills further and deal with more complex financial
models. In the last 3 months, I have successfully gained certifications in advanced financial modelling, equity waterfall modelling and development financial modelling. I am fully capable of building models from scratch and can read excel formula very well. Now, I want to bring these skills into practice.
To perform successfully as an analyst requires me to demonstrate initiative, problem-solving skills and the ability to work in a team. At Hines, I used my initiative to create more dynamic import template models that improved how data from the monthly reporting of different assets is transposed into final master rent rolls, thus facilitating time efficiency across the team. At Engel & Völkers in Berlin, I have also demonstrated the ability to work dynamically alongside investment analysts in successfully delivering lease and transaction comparables and sourcing investment opportunities for the Europa Park and Media Spree development pipelines. This, combined with a “do it yourself” mentality gives me the practical competencies to work under pressure.
I would like to join your company to be trained in carrying out financial and cash flow analysis to assess and quantify key risks in new lending opportunities and all other aspects related to this process. Most importantly, I recognize the underlying value that your Financial Analyst Programme would provide in facilitating my professional development working in real estate finance. I believe that with my developing experience working on diversified real estate projects across Europe combined with a good understanding of debt finance, I would relish the opportunity to develop, learn and contribute quickly to your business.
