Real-life financial simulations
for junior investment bankers
Finsimco is pioneering 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 simulation is
tailored to the target audience - intern, analyst and associate levels,
available as a one-day or three-day product,
flexible to allow the inclusion of further corporate finance fields besides the core M&A and Capital Markets modules.
Why you should learn with us?
The simulations are the results of R&D in which various corporate finance, leveraged finance and risk professionals contributed. From finance foundations to complex corporate valuations, the realistic practical application is in every stage.
PARTICIPANTS ARE LOVING IT
Teams run their simulated investment bank and watch their own P&L rise and fall. They compete against each other in their own market, not against a computer. The gamification of learning technical corporate finance skills leads to very high participant satisfaction.
The simulations involve competition between teams and risk-taking elements to excite people. The energy throughout the process is intense given the competitive elements while analysing, discussing, pitching and negotiating financial instruments and companies.
We support 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 innovative training concept immersing participants in various investment banking tasks and leveraging stochastic modelling techniques to gamify the learning at the right pace.
VALUE FOR MONEY
Our products are cost-effective because participants learn practical skills in a short time-frame, and they can directly apply what they have learned. Participants returning to their desk have a better understanding of their tasks and have gained a big picture understanding of different departments.
How it works
Teams compete against other teams in their own market, not against a computer. The decisions of each team influences the other teams’ results and the market development overall.
Each team runs 4 departments:
Debt capital markets
Equity capital markets
Financial Sponsors Group
Each simulation consists of 5 to 20 teams, with 2 to 4 members in each team.
Each team is running its own Investment Bank with its own P&L.
The simulation is run over 3 to 6 rounds.New industry and company specific data is released in each round.
After the introduction, the teams familiarise themselves with the decision making process, which in each round is influenced by the results of earlier rounds.
