I wouldn't have an internship without your help.

I decided to try out the valuation course because of your YouTube videos and am SO glad that I did. I was super prepared for my technicals and I've really excelled at my internship. I'm getting chances to model that other interns aren't.

I'm Matt Ting, the Course Director of Peak Frameworks.

I've spent my career working at the top private equity funds and was a top bucket analyst at a leading investment bank. I've worked at Silver Lake Partners, Providence Equity and Evercore in New York and Silicon Valley and received offers from several other investment firms.

I know exactly how tough the struggle is - I come from an international school and had to grind tooth and nail to get looks at those firms.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Peak Frameworks course compare to other guides out there?

Our courses are frequently updated and are based on the actual recruiting and interview processes conducted by private equity firms and investment banks today. We maintain contacts in the industry and create specially tailored content based on what the top firms use in their training.

A big reason we created the Peak Frameworks course is because other guides had overly simplistic models and referenced outdated questions. This course comes with several real world Excel examples. We'll be there to answer your questions every step of the way.

What is your refund policy?

The course can be refunded within 14 days. For whatever reason, if you are unhappy with a course, you can request a refund.

Do you need paid resources to land a job in finance?

No, but many, many people pay for guides, private tutors and industry coaching because of how competitive the process is. It's not necessary, but it can save you critical amounts of prep time and give you a clear information advantage over your peers. The industry is so opaque that it can be hard to succeed without the right insight. We guarantee that you'll save yourself many hours by studying from one concise resource.

When should I start learning how to model?

Given how accelerated investment banking and finance recruiting is, we recommend that university candidates be fully technically prepared by their sophomore year. Candidates do not need to know how to model until they begin their internships, but we think it is important that candidates have a strong understanding of technicals well ahead of the interview process.

Post-college candidates seeking to switch careers should ideally learn how to model in advance of speaking with headhunters or applying to jobs.

How long will this course take me?

There are >7 hours of video content, 5 financial model tests, and 1 stock pitch walkthrough in the course. We would advise you to watch an hour or so of content per week and attempt one model per week. The ideal time frame would be about 1 to 2 months of prep.

Do you offer any coaching or tutoring?

We have limited slots available for coaching. Please reach out to if you would like to be coached for finance recruiting.

How long do I have access to this course?

Forever. A one-time payment of $277 (30% off the standard price of $395) gives you access to this course and all future updates.
