Vice President

Dear Sir / Madam

I am writing to express my keen interest in applying for Vice President position in Investment Banking. Currently, I am an Vice President at Citigroup in Riyadh. As deal teams are small in the region, I get significant exposure to various products in the investment banking including M&A, ECM, DCM etc. In addition, as a generalist I get exposed to various industry sectors with a particular focus on oil & gas, industrials, energy & utilities, metals and mining, healthcare and TMT sectors. Prior to joining Citigroup, I gained considerable exposure to European Mergers & Acquisitions through my work experience at Deutsche Bank in London. At Deutsche Bank I was responsible for end to end deal execution, client management, analyst development and idea generation in the TMT M&A group. Through significant interaction with the client and senior management I developed strong peoples skills and execution capabilities.
Due to significant downturn in the European investment banking business in 2008, I left Deutsche Bank in the 3rd quarter last year and took up a position with the leading investment banking firm in the Middle East. At that time Middle Eastern markets were still not affected by credit crises and offered opportunities for growth. In addition, record high oil prices during that time boosted the confidence in the Middle East markets, especially in Saudi Arabia. As the financial markets in the developed markets are improving, there has been a reversal of trend in Middle East. Due to steep decline in oil prices and the false speculation of higher growth, the Middle East markets have been severely affected. After spending close to a year in the region, my wife and I are very keen to move back to the US.
My prior work experiences also include associate in the investment banking group at UBS as well as analyst at Rothschild in New York. These experiences have enabled me to develop key investment banking skills such as financial modeling, presentation, financial analysis and valuation of various public and private companies.
New York, NY
