Bank Specific Emails | GoFurther Networking Series
June 24, 2017
Thank you for your email! Saturday this weekend would be fine, please let me know how your schedule looks.
I was also able to chat with Rohan Sharma on his experiences and my strong interest in Lazard--I am very excited to continue the conversation with you!
I'd also like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a great day,
Thank you very much for your time last night and for your insight on the analyst experience at Lazard Middle Market!
It was great speaking with you and Rohan on the experience at Lazard and its M&A practice, which aligns very well with my interests. I particularly loved our talk on the culture of the office and on your lead role in the deals since you started with Lazard. I really appreciate our conversation, as I have Lazard as a top choice moving into the recruiting season.
I also wanted to attach an updated resume (I know that Lazard wanted us to list relevant coursework).
I realize that the office is quite busy, but I'd also be very interested in talking to an associate/VP on their work at Lazard Middle Market and get their perspective.
Thank you again for the assistance!
I am writing to again express interest in the Greenhill Investment Banking Summer Analyst--I have applied and submitted my resume on the [insert School Name] career advancement website.
Greenhill's multinational and entrepreneurial culture, as well as its strong deal teams that have advised on many major acquisitions, set the firm apart from others in its space and excites me for the position.
My summer experience at Ernst & Young's Valuation and Business Modeling team has furthered my interest in investment banking and exposed me to valuation and deal experience.
I have also reached out to Lokesh Anand, a current analyst, on the possibility of a chat on his experiences at the company, especially coming from [insert School Name]. I would love an opportunity to interview and continue the conversation.
Best Regards, --
I would just like to thank you for our chat last week--I really appreciate the insights you have given me on your work and on the exciting direction of UBS. From my research and conversations, UBS has become a top choice bank for me moving into the recruiting season.
On that note, I have submitted my application on the UBS website and really value your support.
Best regards and have a happy upcoming holiday,
I have sent an invite (hopefully, Google works) and have it scheduled on Thursday. I also wanted to attach an updated version of my resume to guide our conversation.
Looking forward to our chat!
I just wanted to check-in and ask if 2:30pm EST still works for you today.
Looking forward to our chat!
I just wanted to follow-up and thank you for our chat yesterday. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to speak to me--I really appreciate your insights on JP Morgan and on your experiences as an analyst. The discussion was very helpful!
JP Morgan is a top choice bank for me and talking to you and the other JP Morgan analysts gave me a great perspective on the firm and its work. I look forward to continuing the conversation and will keep you updated.
Best regards and have a happy holidays, --
I just wanted to follow-up and thank you for our chat earlier this week--I really enjoyed our conversation on the Industrials group and on the concerns for clients in the current macroeconomic environment.
I really look forward to continuing the conversation. I have been networking with Deutsche Bank bankers from New York and the discussions have been great so far. In particular, I was able to chat with Will Straatman and Giannina Sy, analysts at the New York office. The firm's great culture, people, and deals are reasons why the bank has emerged as a top choice for me!
That being said, I have already applied for the summer analyst program on [insert School Name]'s career website and on the Deutsche Bank website. I appreciate all the advice and insights you gave me, and I look forward to incorporating these should I be lucky to get an interview at Deutsche Bank.
Thank you for our conversation this morning--it was great to hear your insights on the FIG group at Goldman Sachs and some of the very interesting transactions you were involved in.
I look forward to incorporating these insights should I be lucky to get an interview at Goldman. FIG has become a top choice for me as it aligns with my interests, and I loved speaking to you and Jacob Munoz on your experiences. I was also able to meet Andre Kelleners and Tony Pulice who are part of the recruiting team, which gave me a great sense of the culture at Goldman.
Please find attached my resume--I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you updated. I also wanted to wish you a happy upcoming holiday!
Dear Mr. Kelleners,
Hope you are doing well--I just wanted to quickly follow-up from the Goldman Sachs information session and wish you a happy upcoming holidays.
I would like to again express my strong interest in Goldman Sachs. I have applied for the investment banking position on the Goldman Sachs website and on the [insert School Name] careers website.
My research on the company and discussions with bankers, particularly Tony Pulice and Kaushik Ravi, were very insightful and I hope to continue the conversation. Kaushik and I had a great conversation on the expectations for FIG in the coming year and on his exciting work with the group. Goldman Sachs is a top choice for me moving into the recruiting season and I look forward to becoming more involved with the company.
Best Regards, --
Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML)
I just wanted to follow-up and thank you again for the call. I really appreciate our talk on your experiences and the insight on the top groups at Bank of America.
Since our conversation, I have been doing more research and reading up on Bank of America's significant deals and involvement--one recent transaction that struck me was BAML's role as the sole bookrunner in the Telefónica SA sale of a 2.5% stake in China Unicom for $875 million. The move was interesting because of Telefónica's multiple recent acquisitions in Europe and Latin America--the divestiture could be a means of strengthening their financial position ahead of other potential acquisitions in certain markets driven by industry consolidation. I also found the transaction a testament to BAML's relationships, having advised Telefónica's German unit in a prior telecom acquisition, and multinational reach.
On that note, I wanted to again express my strong interest in BAML and ask for advice on how to best position myself for the firm's recruiting cycle. I have reached out to bankers, including Booth Alumni, and would love an opportunity to continue the conversation.
