I have just graduated with a 2:1 in Economics from the University of Durham. I am very interested in broadening my business experience and would love to secure a financial internship in London at the earliest opportunity.
In 2014 I secured an internship at Lincoln Private Investment Office, which is a start-up Wealth Management business. I worked directly for the CEO and as a result of the exposure, both internal and external, was able to significantly increase my understanding of and knowledge about the financial services industry. I was given many responsibilities and undertook a number of projects throughout my time there. I have also undergone some work experience at Cazenove Capital Management and JP Morgan Cazenove where I was able to interact with people from all over the industry and increase my basic knowledge on many different parts of the financial sector.
In studying for my degree I have completed modules on advanced finance methods and also studied many broader economic and business modules. Economics and business modules in my course have built my understanding behind investment decisions and provided me with a strong knowledge base on the current state of the global economy. I have a strong academic record, which demonstrates my ability to take on a lot of problems alongside numerous extra curricular activities, and I know I will put this into good use if given the opportunity to gain an internship. I also recently completed my dissertation on ‘Testing semi-strong market efficiency of the London Stock Exchange’ and feel this has given me further insight into the workings of financial markets.
I have represented my school, county and country at a multitude of different sports, including the U19 Scotland Lacrosse team, Surrey squash, Surrey netball and achieved the 6th form Sports Scholarship at St Catherine's School, Bramley. At school I was also Head of House allowing me to grow in confidence and improve my leadership skills both on the sports field and in broader school life.
I think that my interests and skills will fit well with the demanding nature of any company. I am happy to look at any openings that may come available from September 2015.
