I see you just edited your initial post.
1.Why would these people want to take me on.
2. Why would I want to join these guys.
For the 1st q you will have to explain why you will be better suited than others
For the 2nd, as the question asks, you will have to say why YOU want to join them

These are speicific questions for YOU. If you cannot come up with a reason for each question, then what is the point really?
We are 18 year old kids with similar A level, similar Uni courses, the only difference between us on paper would be our hobbies and interests. How specific can I make this to my self ? Can I just some idea of the type of things I should be writing ? Should I make what I write related to the field for which I am interested or just write generic things about my self which anyone could write really ?
write about what things you have done in your life that make you suited to the position you are applying for. also any material you have read which confirms your interest in the job. also any people you have spoken to.

WE AREN'T APPLYING FOR A POSITION. also any material you have read which confirms your interest in the job. THERE IS NO JOB . also any people you have spoken to. COULD YOU SPECIFY THIS A BIT MORE, NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN.
EDITED YOUR POST IN CAPS

Read around the companies website, do news searches for them, find old forum threads and pick interesting stories and books you may have/will read. From this information, you should be able to then say at least why the financial services industry and the company.
A good place to start would be by putting the companies name into google followed by Q2 2012 results. Look for the 'earnings call' and read the transcript. They'll go through profit and revenue etc and how the firm is adjusting their strategy to their wider surroundings.
Then the why you part. Well, why you? What have you done? What are your strengths? And how do they cross over into the work environment. E.g. School Rugby - Teamwork, training, commitment etc. Summer customer services job where you handled cash - responsibility, communication.

Not a troll. I just find it ironic that you're laughing at the OP when your lack of knowledge, experience, and reiteration of tsr BS is more or less on par with the OP's.
Ps. I am not going to blow my trumpet... but I have enough experience... a whole year of it tnx
