- The “LA” in our name is fundamental to who we are, where we are from and what we stand for.
You may have guessed it is a mixed Spanish and English translation meaning “The (La) Institute of Finance”? Not quite, but it makes sense since our platform and services are designed to help bridge these stellar cultures. But for our valued Portuguese speakers, we’d just as much like to be the “O Institute of Finance”.
- In reality our names relates to our geography, but not how you might think. We love Los Angeles, but if you take a look at our Contacts Page, you’ll realize that wasn’t the inspiration. Some members of our management, instructors and staff are proudly from Latin America, so maybe that’s the answer? Not yet but getting much closer. Our LA stands for Las Americas, resonating with the focus of our company mission.
- Our name reflects our mission of creating a world-class Institute focused on democratizing the highest-quality targeted finance-related education to individuals and institutions between and across the entire Las Americas region. Each and every one of us has devoted our careers to spurring the growth of financial services across the Americas and we are now devoting our lives to spread the professional knowledge and networks we’ve collectively attained to help serve your financial educational needs.
- You don’t need to read all the daily headlines to recognize that finance shapes the world that we live in. Grasping finance fully develops and expands your personal and professional knowledge, in turn reshaping your life, career and organization. A high-quality education is the best personal investment you can ever make, at all points in your life.
- A financial education, on your terms and tracked to your schedule, has the unique power to reap daily dividends for you, your family and for generations to come.
- Our innovative, user friendly financial programs allow you to access institutional curriculum precisely where your needs, aspirations, and learning potential all intersect.

- Having achieved successful careers in finance and having devoted most of our professional lives to facilitating capital flows throughout the Americas region, our organization of world class financial leaders have realized personal goals and dreams while making their own collective contributions to the financial community. They have learned that for real structural societal transformation to take place, in both eliminating the inequality gap in the global finance arena as well as in elevating personal lives and those of millions of individuals, financial knowledge must be developed, nurtured and democratized through massive open curriculums.
- From industrial firms to financial institutions; from small business owners to investment professionals; and individuals across all walks of life: educational foundations are essential.
- Without the appropriate financial knowledge in your own hands, personal and organizational growth will remain stagnant.
- We set out to build an institute of financial learning that addresses shortcomings providing manageable and targeted education for the masses. There is a serious vacuum in the forums of education providing resources to our target audiences. For those who do provide financial educational services, the needs of the region and community are an afterthought at best within larger corporate plans. For us, it’s our main focus.
- We’ve tailored our approach to focus less about arcane theory (although you’ll certainly get more than just the foundations) and towards more practical, tailored and hands-on virtual learning from our expert instructors along with the best-in-class providers, all in one place.
- No matter where you may be on the learning curve and no matter what heights you want to achieve, we want to make a difference in your life.
