About The Finance School

The Finance School was formed about three years ago with the objective of bringing world class financial education to India. Over the past three years, we have trained over 1,000 professionals in several of India’s leading financial firms. We have trained over 70% of ICICI Direct’s relationship managers in their Equity Relationship Services group. After developing a strong reputation within ICICI for staff training, we were asked by their ICFL (ICICI Center for Financial Learning) to develop a program for their most advanced traders. This program titled MARKETMaster has been very well received and we have run classes in Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru, and Kolkata. We have also conducted programs for staff and franchisees of Motilal Oswal, Kotak and Reliance Securities. All these programs have been consistently rated very highly by participants.
