I have always had a passion for Finance and had aimed to delve deeper into that field within my own professional path at my current job. However, I needed the confidence and strong foundations on which to build my personal and professional growth. FRI gave me just that.

I always have been an average student. Going for the CFA exam seemed to be a greater leap than I could manage and seemed like an impossible achievement. I never thought that I was capable of passing the CFA exam – especially not from my first trial. FRI made it possible.

I truly appreciate what the highly professional team at FRI has done to make our CFA exam preparations manageable. In fact, it can easily be said that they did all the hard work on our behalf and sent us well-equipped to our exam. It was a really long journey, and quite a stressful one, but FRI made it bearable.
We always found them there for support in times of need, guiding us in every step of the way.

The quality of instruction at FRI is incomparable. It is beyond what is found in books and teaching equipment. It is altogether the experience within the classroom and the dynamic interactions encouraged therein. I can assertively say that I have gained much more than just the CFA knowledge from FRI; I have been able to sharpen my analytic and people skills, build a network, and aspire more for myself in the future.

I would like to especially extend my utmost gratitude to Mr. Doumit, who is not only a really amazing instructor, but also a remarkable person, with the right knowledge and skills. All FRI apprentices are lucky to have you. I wish you all the best in your career and personal life.

I will probably register for my level II exam next year. However, if one thing is certain, it is that I will only embark on that tedious journey again only with FRI for I am and always will be an ambassador for FRI.
