Ms. Nelly Rocio
Modelo Partners
182 Embarcadero Center
San Francisco, CA 94111

Dear Ms. Rocio:

I am a Stanford University junior majoring in Economics with a minor in Math. I am ready for a summer
internship with Modelo Partners in San Francisco because I am a driven and achievement-oriented
individual with previous finance experience.

I currently co-manage the Charles R. Blyth Fund, a student-run equity and options portfolio of $140k.
Outside of developing my capabilities as a leader and coach, my primary skill set is company valuation.
My stock valuation methods are fundamental and quantitative - I value companies in teams using
discounted cash flow and comps models accompanied by market research. I believe my ability to
evaluate an investment is similar to an analyst’s ability to value companies for various transactions. I am
ready to develop this skill into a lifetime expertise with your firm.

I also developed a general investment banking skill set at Weinstein Partners this past summer. I studied
the gaming technology space to evaluate potential clients based on revenues, milestones, and whether
they had venture capital and private equity backing and pitched top opportunities to my sector leader. I
became proficient in power point and excel and even sat down with top management to learn about the
company’s operations from a high-level perspective.

My internship at Weinstein Partners was an excellent opportunity to learn about the investment banking
business and to develop my ability to prepare client materials. I’m looking for the opportunity to take
my self-initiating personality and truly learn the investment banking trade from Mr. Modelo’s team of
top technology bankers.

Moreover, I would love to start my career in San Francisco. I have lived across three countries and four
states and find there is no city with a culture like San Francisco, especially with its proximity to Silicon
Valley. After taking classes on Software as a Service and Biopharmaceutical Innovation, I’m drawn to
technology companies and enjoy analyzing them. I am currently completing two classes on how to
analyze technology companies and believe that I’ll be even more technically prepared and suited to the
analyst role upon their completion.

With my previous finance experience and driven, achievement-oriented personality, I am ready to be the
analyst coming in not only ready to learn, but ready to outperform. I would be delighted to work with
Modelo Partners.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Erin Parker
