Our vision

FinStream’s founders wanted to improve the quality of financial services education with an online platform dedicated to the finance sector. With a significant gap between theory and practice, students, even those with a Masters in Finance, require additional skills to find ongoing success in the industry. This has created an ongoing problem for both recent graduates and finance employers.
Their vision was to help bridge the gap between higher education and professional banking for individuals and companies.

To achieve this vision, our founders sought to create a more innovative approach to learning, offering more interactive aspects and a focus on the most important finance aspects. They created FinStream.

What makes us different? FinStream seeks to contextualise learning to focus on the more complex parts of finance. It is practice-based and focuses on how individual proficiency boosts learning.

At FinStream, we go beyond simply explaining the rules of finance. Our team is engaged in genuine partnerships with our users. We actively listen, formulate ideas and develop solutions to provide the best learning experience and outcomes possible.

If you’re already working in the finance industry, our educational streams will let you quickly and continually expand your understanding of key foundational concepts, enabling faster learning to help you excel in this industry.
