Welcome to CFI

CFI and the FMVA® Program

CFI Corporate Training

The modern financial analyst requires a well-rounded skill set that takes time to acquire. Some of the skills are developed in university, some are developed on the job, and some of the skills come from experience and developing a strong business intuition. At CFI, we combine all three skill sets -- theory, application, and intuition -- into a condensed, self-paced program that can be taken anytime, anywhere.

CFI’s Financial Modeling and Valuation Analyst (FMVA)® was designed based on over 20 years of financial analyst training experience delivered by our instructors at large global banks and institutions such as BlackRock, Credit Suisse, HSBC, JP Morgan, Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, Bank of America, Citi, and more.
