Hi everyone my name is Ali! I am a former investment banker and later an investment professional in a multi-billion dollar family office who worked on various M&A deals across 8 countries including the UK, the US, Italy, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Dubai and Turkey.

I have deal experience in a wide range of industries including hospitality, food & beverage, restaurants, entertainment, marinas, e-commerce, technology and media.   

I graduated with a degree in economics and finance from a top-tier university in the UK and later studied my masters at the University of Oxford. I started my career in a US based Bulge Bracket investment bank and worked at several institutions before I quit advisory business and moved to buy-side. 

Remembering the struggles I had until I made way into investment banking, I decided to create courses like never created before - single stop shops for everything you will ever need to become a star investment banking analyst / associate.

With days and nights (very, very late nights) of hands on experience for more than 7 years, I will teach you all the necessary skills to land a job on and to survive in investment banking!
