Alliance Creates Full Spectrum of Financial Modeling Courses
LONDON, UK and ATLANTA, USA -- March 21, 2013 -- F1F9 UK Ltd. and Vair Training, LLC announced a partnership between the two international training firms that will create a wide range of various-level financial modeling courses offered globally. The alliance combines F1F9ís modeling courses based on the industry-proven FAST Standard, and Vair's commercially-based training programs, to provide a focused and comprehensive approach to modeling.
F1F9 employs the FAST Standard in its courses, promoting standardization in financial modeling through a flexible, appropriate, structured and transparent approach. Vair delivers advanced financial modeling workshops with a focus on quantitative-based training within the global infrastructure community; Course topics include financial statement modeling and analysis, project finance and public-private partnerships.
"F1F9 is a financial-training innovator. The FAST modeling methodology that they have been a driving force in developing is one that we have always admired and consistently recommend to our learners," said Stephen Janes, Managing Director at Vair. "By adopting the Standard in our own course materials, we are ensuring that our students are part of the largest international community of modelers."
Adds Charles "Chip" Haskell, Managing Director and Head Trainer at Vair, "Offering F1F9 courses to all our students will allow them the opportunity to master the fundamental modeling skills necessary to fully benefit from Vair's advanced training programs. We both use a strict 'hands-on' approach in our classes, and this collaboration perfectly compliments our respective technical and commercial training skills as they pertain to the model".
Kenny Whitelaw-Jones, Managing Director at F1F9, said "Financial modeling is always a means to an end. Vair courses focus on how to use financial models to support commercial negotiations. To that end, they are an excellent supplement to our model-build courses and we think they will be of real value to our client base".
To launch their partnership, the companies will host 'An Introduction to FAST Financial Modelling', followed by a cocktail reception, on:
