Mr. George Flint, CEO
SME Associates

Rosemary Avenue
Cambridge, MA 21410


Dear Mr. Flint:

I am writing in response to your job advertisement for the position of a Quantitative Analyst cited on your website. As a skilled and experienced professional, gifted with analytical thinking and a deep insight into finance industry, I would like to take part in the attainment of your long term goals.

Going through your company’s profile and foundational information, I felt that my idea about finance industry is quite similar to yours. I enjoy being challenged by financial situations; and when faced with one I just start working unstoppably using all my relevant analytical skills and expertise until I come up with a workable solution.

During the five fruitful years of experience I spent with C&C associates Boston in the capacity of quantitative analyst/financial engineer, I developed various successful investment plans for the company and its clients. In addition to financial risk analysis, I also provided research based financial forecast services and made recommendations based on my quantitative analysis. I am familiar with algorithm based finance software of many kinds.

Utilizing my expertise and experience in the field, I could assist you in turning your most critical investments into profitable projects. I will call you later this week to set up an interview date to further discuss this position. Meanwhile, if you have any queries, I’ll be available at (099) 444-7777.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Best Regards,

Timothy Gear
