• The “LA” in our name is fundamental to who we are, where we’re from and what we stand for.
    You may have guessed it is a mixed Spanish/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 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.
  • OK, it’s not fair to keep you guessing anymore, the answer is: “Las Americas”.
  • It’s important to convey to you, because our name reflects our mission of creating a world-class Institute focused on spreading 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.


  • Having achieved successful careers in finance and having devoted most of our professional lives to facilitating capital flows throughout the Americas region, many on our team have realized personal goals and dreams while making our own collective contributions to the general prosperity of the region as a whole. But we also have learned that for real structural transformation to take place, in both raising the stature of the Americas in the global finance arena as well as in elevating personal lives and those of their families, financial knowledge must be developed, nurtured and spread throughout the region.
  • 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 in the current financial education system focused on the Americas.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 only 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 as we truly believe that this growth benefits us all.
  • Consistent with our mission of delivering only the highest-quality and most relevant financial training and education to our clients, we closely partner with leading experts, trainers, practitioners and providers who are based throughout the Americas.
  • With advancements in online, virtual learning technologies, we can provide you with the best of the best, never settling for less despite geographic barriers.
    Bottom-line, our groundbreaking work translates to a better educational experience for you.


  • 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.
