I'm looking for advice on cold emailing, i.e what should my emails contain.
I'm in my junior year at a non-target, I wasn't successful in securing an internship for this summer. So I've been cold emailing and I've started targeting boutique asset managers and consulting/VC firms. I'm looking for advice on the emails I've been sending. Here is an example for a nearby AM firm:
I am a penultimate year BA (Hons) Economics & Finance (predicted 2:1) [Note to US members, my GPA equivalent is 3.7] student at the University of non-target, I live nearby in XXXXX and found out about XXXXX firm through a broad based google search.
I'm writing to inquire about any paid/unpaid working experience/internship opportunities that may be present within your firm. I'm interested in your firm due its small size and how that allows it to provide a focused, personal service to the local community and to clients further afoot. Personally, I have a demonstrable interest and hunger to enter the Asset Management industry. I currently manage a student fund with XXXX AUM. As part of my role I have helped build an excel model that tracks fund performance, I also deliver educational speeches to new students providing them with a basic understanding of financial markets, allowing them to engage with the investment process. I believe I have the analytical and persuasive skills that would quickly make me an asset to your firm and I am very excited about the learning opportunities that a position within your firm would offer. I apologize if this is too forward, but i have attached my CV for consideration.
