The FMI has candidates from:


  • FMI offers a top-notch, well-run and efficient financial modeling accreditation service. For exam preparation, they offer clear overviews and fantastic review material so that the candidates know exactly what to prepare for. All information is clear, concise, and complete – no details are overlooked. It was a pleasure to have worked through the process with the FMI.
    In addition, they offer great support service as well. From a Slack group for each exam, to 1-on-1 reviewing if needed, they look out for the candidates in a way that is second to none. Their service is to be envied by any competitor, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking to further their financial modeling background in any capacity. I am proud to have taken the AFM exam with FMI.

  • The FMI sets a very high standard for financial modeling around the world. As the Level 2 CFM exam is new, I can’t yet count on having a test centre in a small country like Latvia where I live. But this just adds to the excitement, as every time I can choose another test centre in another city (London, Zurich, Frankfurt and even Moscow work well for me).

  • I got a terrific job with a fast growing company with a strong support from a PE firm which wants to spend a lot of money on building a national fitness chain. I would need to do a lot of modeling here and my boss told me that he chose me because I have the AFM designation. So my success is to a significant part thanks to you and your amazing firm. Thank you a lot. Looking forward when you introduce 2nd and 3rd levels and I be among first to register.
