Attaching Operating Model and Pitch Book to Cold Email - 1st Year Analyst Not Currently in IBSubscribe
Long Story Short: You receive a cold-email from someone looking for advice on lateraling to investment banking from real estate finance (1st year analyst). He has attached a 3 statement operating he built for a REIT that is most likely looking to sell, complete with a DCF, NAV, Comps along with a short pitch book describing the opportunity.
Is this a good way to demonstrate that you're hardworking, proficient in modeling and have decent knowledge of the industry you would like to cover? Or would this be overkill and make you look like a hardo? I'm attempting this now, but it has proved very time consuming and difficult so it would be helpful to get some confirmation as I continue. Any Feedback is appreciated but would especially like to hear from people that currently work in Investment Banking and have received emails from students / laterals before. You guys will have the best idea of how this would be perceived.
As additional background, I've received positive feedback from local Investment Banks (not NYC / San Fran), so I know the move is feasible. But am considering using this to make myself more viable for more competitive positions in NYC.
