I have an excellent academic background, from which I have gained the strong quantitative and analytical skills. I ranked within the top 0.02% of students in China in my National College Entrance Exams, achieved a 1st Class BSc in Physics and Distinction in my MSc in Optics & Photonics. I have regularly received awards in recognition of academic excellence, including the £40,000 Cambridge Overseas Trust Scholarship which is awarded to only the top 1% of PhD students.
I have strong finance knowledge – I am currently studying for the Investment Management Certificate and the Wall Street Prep Certificate of Advanced Financial and Valuation Modelling, and I am an avid reader of The Economist and the Financial Times. I believe that I understand the key drivers of economic change and their effect on the bond, equity, foreign currency and commodity markets, and I understand the differing methods of equity valuation and their implications in different industries.
I have taken the initiative to gain practical Finance experience – in summer 2010, I interned in Equity Research at China Merchants Securities, where I analysed equity strategy, performance and market trends to identify investment opportunities in the Chinese steel sector, and in summer 2011, I interned at Barclays Wealth, gaining practical experience in investment management. My internships have taught me to confidently analyse complex financial information, to produce compelling recommendations based on hard data, and to deliver excellent results while working in pressurised, results-driven environments.
I am intellectually curious, with a keen research instinct, and I often read research notes from investment banks such as Goldman Sachs. My reading has highlighted the importance of providing clients with unique insights to influence their investment strategy and to enable them to make informed investment decisions – to this end, I am looking forward to modelling cash flow forecasts, building financial models and evaluating investment potential.
I am outgoing and personable, with strong communication and influencing skills – these skills were enhanced during my roles as External Officer of Imperial College Finance Society, Events Coordinator of Cambridge Consulting Society and Assistant Editor of the Cambridge 209 Radio Station. I am able to confidently present to a room full of people and to persuasively convey complex ideas, and I am accustomed to working within and leading diverse teams. In addition, I speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese which I hope will be an asset to your company.
