Real-life investment banking simulations to forge tomorrow’s industry leaders

Join the top financial analysts


Finsimco is working with the leading banks on their staff training and development. We are a pioneer in investment banking simulations. Our simulations are the most challenging and realistic available for training corporate finance professionals. 
We provide experiential learning in an exciting, virtual business environment. The combination of immediate feedback and the competitive group dynamics are unbeatable for consolidating learning and acquiring skills

Our modular-based investment banking simulations are:

  • tailored to the target audience - intern, analyst and associate levels,

  • available as a 1/2-day to 10-day product,

  • flexible to allow the inclusion of further corporate finance fields besides the core M&A and Capital Markets modules.

Why work with us


Our simulations are built by various corporate finance, leveraged finance and risk professionals. From finance foundations to complex corporate valuations, realistic practical applications can be found throughout every stage of the experience.


Teams run their simulated investment bank and become immersed watching their own P&L rise and fall. They compete against each other in their own virtual market, not against a computer. The gamification of learning technical corporate finance skills lhas lead to very high participant satisfaction.


The simulations involve competition between teams and risk-taking elements resulting in a lively user experience. The energy throughout the process is intense and only builds through the stages as participants engage in analysis, discussion, preparing a pitch and negotiating financial instruments and companies.  


Our simulation can be up and running in no time. We also offer support to our clients beyond a particular training event. Our products are tailored towards clients’ needs and follow up consultations as well as testing options are available. 


We offer a highly interactive and modern training concept immersing participants in various investment banking tasks and leveraging stochastic modelling techniques to gamify the learning experience at a pace that adapts to the learner.


Our unrivalled simulations offer the full package. Participants learn the fundamentals and beyond in a short time-frame, equipping them to directly apply what they have learned. Participants returning to their desk having gained a better understanding of their roles and an appreciation for other teams and clients' perspectives.
