About the Financial Modeling Academy


The Financial Modeling Academy (FMA) was founded in 2015 by Vincent Launay. The objective of the FMA is to promote the use of good practices in financial modeling and to make financial modeling available to as many people as possible. The idea behind the site is to show that with only a few tricks and some practice, it is possible to save a tremendous amount of time and to improve the quality of the models that are produced.
