As more than expected!

Pretty good so far.....but......it would be helpful if we had another exercise where the forecast rates weren't so constant and the reasoning as to why we're using different forecast rates are justified.

The level of detail is appropriate

Concise and clear narration, useful as an aid to any audio book or general book on essential banking terms. Suggest that you listen to it at normal speed since most of the content is easy to whiz through. The level of detail is appropriate for someone with basic understanding of the fundamentals of finance and the instructor does an excellent job of selecting key concepts in each section and explaining them well.

Starts from the basics

Great audio course. Starts from the basics for those with little or no experience but ends up going pretty deep in the concepts. Particularly liked the "studying business English or economics, knowing some banking terms will also help you a lot with your vocabulary" quote. It is hard to find courses that actually teach how to to travel for business or do business in another country or those banking-related words.

Highly recommended!

One of the best courses I've had on the work of investment banks, although the content can be easily extrapolated to other types of advisory firms. While there are a few redundancies here and there, in no way does it make the course feel boring. Highly recommended!
