Financial Services Workplace Simulator to recruit the best and train them fast
Founded by experienced investment bankers and software developers, with previous roles at Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank.
We experienced the inefficiencies in Financial Services training and hiring.
And so we created a simulator that immerses participants into 'on the job' pressurised transactions and deal flows.
WHY WORK WITH US
The simulator helps participants to understand the big picture of Financial Services and what it is like to work in the field. Through this, participants appreciate the perspectives of banks, advisors, corporate managers, and equity & debt holders.
ASSESS JOB SUITABILITY
The combination of team-based and candidate-only challenges provide powerful insights into whether candidates will perform well ‘on the job’. This allows employers to take job applicants on a test drive before hiring them.
The simulator is intense and the energy builds as participants progress through each stage; taking part in analyses, discussions, pitches, Q&A sessions, and negotiations.
PARTICIPANTS ARE LOVING IT
The gamification element of the simulator creates a stimulating environment for the participants. Teams are immersed into key transactions and deal-flows. They compete against each other in their own virtual market, not against a computer.
