Breaking Into Wall Street Platinum
I'll cut right to the chase... The only reason I created this page is because so many students, entry-level professionals, and career changers have asked me to recommend the FASTEST and most “BULLETPROOF” way to break into and advance within investment banking, private equity, and hedge funds.
But an important note first: If you’ve never heard of me, or you're not familiar with what BIWS is "all about," this package is probably NOT for you... yet.
But if you’re still with me… then please read this entire page and decide if you’re the right fit for BIWS Platinum...
Founder, Breaking Into Wall Street
Who is a Fit for BIWS Platinum, and Who is Not?
A while back, I was doing some research and speaking with students and professionals enrolled in our courses... and I discovered that we have TWO types of customers here at BIWS.
The first type enrolls in one or two courses to address a specific need or "gap," but never advances much further than that.
The second type absorbs everything we offer like a sponge, often enrolling in all our courses as they advance through the ranks in the finance industry - from breaking in, to earning bonuses and promotions, to moving to the buy-side... and eventually becoming "top dog" at a well-known firm - or even starting their own firm.
Of course, I value ALL our customers... but I wanted to do something EXTRA SPECIAL for you if you want to squeeze the most value out of what we have to offer.
So I’ve bundled up ALL of our courses into a "super package" called BIWS Platinum – which lets you get your hands on all the courses that you’d very likely invest in over time anyway... and lock in an immediate savings of $979 as a "thank you" for signing up early.
At first, I was skeptical that more than 1 or 2 students might be interested in this package... but BIWS Platinum is now our second-best-selling product!
So if you think this ‘all-inclusive’ package might be for you, read on to look at everything you get inside and you'll instantly see and appreciate the massive value:

WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course helps you win interviews and makes it easy to advance throughout your career
The Investment Banking Networking Toolkit makes it easy to create valuable contacts and connections that will ease your way into a great job in the finance industry. Learn how to find names and contact information, how to plan your informational interviews and cold calls, and how to break into finance – without stressing yourself out or feeling "pushy."
You get 37 video and audio files, along with dozens of bonus email templates, networking success case studies, and a module on how to use LinkedIn effectively. Everything is presented in multiple formats, so you can watch, listen, or read, depending on your preferred learning style.
To accelerate your networking, we even give you the names and descriptions of 4,178+ investment banks, 11,306+ private equity firms and 3,190+ hedge funds, organized by region (Note: These include main phone numbers and email addresses/physical addresses, but are not specific people at each firm).
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course helps you pitch yourself, answer "fit" questions, and master the trickiest technical interview questions
This is your "Interview Action Plan" - it gives you preparation checklists for interviews, shows you how to walk through your resume and background with 18 templates, and explains how to prepare efficiently for the "fit" and qualitative questions (with tutorials, dozens of sample questions and answers, and more).
There are also 578+ pages of detailed coverage of the technical topics, including material that no other guide on the planet teaches (e.g., private companies, ECM/DCM/Leveraged Finance, and industry-specific questions). And then there are 18+ Excel files you can use to understand all these concepts in-depth, along with 218+ quiz questions you can use to test yourself.
In addition to all that, you can test your skills with the 17 practice case studies - ranging from 3-statement modeling to valuation/DCF to M&A and LBO-related exercises. These are very similar to the tests you'd have to complete at assessment centers in the EMEA region and in more advanced interviews.
The guide is comprehensive, but efficiency is the goal as well - which is why we provide study plans for 4 hours, 2 days, and 1 week of preparation time. If you have more time than that, great! But make sure you master the fundamentals outlined in these plans first.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: These lessons give you a crash course in the Excel and VBA skills that you'll use to model and value companies and analyze transactions
Master Excel, and you'll be well ahead of the competition before you even step into the office on the first day of the job.
You'll learn everything from core Excel shortcuts, navigation, and formatting up through formulas, graphing, and data analysis, and how to use Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to automate your workflow and save time on the most common tasks - so you leave the office earlier and get a higher bonus.
You'll learn the ropes with two case studies, one based on a valuation of Walmart and one based on a customer due diligence analysis in a deal, and you'll super-charge your productivity with our custom BIWS Macros package and Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) - plus, detailed written guides and quiz questions so you can test yourself on everything.
Excel is the core skill required in virtually all front-office finance roles, and you'll be well ahead of the curve after completing this course.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course helps you master foundational accounting, valuation, and financial modeling skills that you'll use in investment banking, private equity, hedge funds, equity research, and other fields
In this course, you'll learn accounting, valuation, and financial modeling from the ground up with 10+ real-life case studies from around the world, including: Atlassian (Australia), EasyJet (U.K.), 7 Days Inn (China), Vivendi (France), Chuck E. Cheese's (U.S.), Steel Dynamics (U.S.), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (U.S.), Suntory (Japan), Kakao / Daum (Korea), and Netflix (U.S.).
These case studies teach you how to use financial modeling to make client advisory recommendations (e.g., advise a client on whether it should sell itself or raise capital) for investment banking roles and how to make investment recommendations for buy-side roles such as private equity and hedge funds. Nothing else on the market teaches you the spreadsheet skills and the thought process in the same way.
These are the fundamental skills you'll need in in any sector in the finance industry - and you'll be ahead of the game by mastering them before you start working. Each topic has an introductory and "more advanced" version, so you can pick and choose the lessons that are most appropriate for your skill level and time requirements.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course saves you hours of time each day, lets you leave the office earlier, and gives you dozens of templates that will speed up your own presentations and pitch books
When it comes to entry-level jobs in investment banking, your PowerPoint skills can make or break you.
You'll spend much of your time in PowerPoint, and believe me - you won't have time to decipher Microsoft's cryptic "Help" articles. Your bosses will expect professional pitch books and presentations on a deadline - so you better be able to deliver.
PowerPoint Pro teaches you everything you need to know about PowerPoint for investment banking, private equity, and hedge fund roles - from how to set up the interface to optimize your speed and efficiency, to navigation, slides, shapes, alignment, distribution, grouping, formatting, and more.
You'll learn how to use the Slide Master and Sections effectively, how to paste in and format Excel, Word, and image data, and how to apply "finishing touches" to fix small problems in your presentation; and then you'll get to practice even more with different company and deal profiles and additional exercises.
The entire course is based on a sell-side M&A pitch book and valuation for Jazz Pharmaceuticals, and you learn how to create every slide in the presentation from the ground up.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course lets you dominate your commercial real estate, real estate private equity, real estate investment banking, and other RE-related interviews and case studies
Get the bleeding edge advantage you need to master real-world real estate and REIT financial modeling and valuation... with 8 short case studies and 9 longer, more in-depth case studies from around the world, including multifamily, office/retail, industrial, hotel, and condominium properties, and hotel, office, multifamily, retail, data center, and industrial REITs.
Topics covered include real estate development and acquisition modeling, waterfall returns, debt and equity draws, tenant-by-tenant lease modeling, and 3-statement projections, valuation, debt vs. equity, M&A and merger models, and LBO models for REITs... and much, much more.
In each case study of the course, we walk you through not only the Excel model and step-by-step process to build the formulas, but also the thought process and how to make an investment recommendation at the end, including how to identify the risk factors and ways to mitigate them.
The coverage is global, with examples from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Brazil, the UAE (Dubai), France and Spain, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.
Throughout the course, we use real properties and companies - such as 100 Bishopsgate in London, The Lyric in Seattle, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai, and, on the REIT side, AvalonBay in the U.S., SPH REIT in Singapore, Digital Realty / DuPont Fabros in the U.S., and Pure Industrial Real Estate Trust in Canada.
There are 114 videos, as well as 300+ pages of written guides, case study documents, investment recommendation outlines and full presentations, and more - so you can review the key points and get up to speed quickly.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course helps you develop valuation and modeling expertise specific to banks and financial institutions, including how to make investment recommendations
Master the fundamentals and the nuances of bank and financial institution accounting, valuation, and financial modeling with detailed, step-by-step video training.
This course is based on four detailed, global case studies: An operating model and valuation for Shawbrook, a U.K.-based "challenger bank," a merger model for KeyCorp's $4.1 billion acquisition of First Niagara, a potential growth equity investment in ANZ, and a 100% buyout of the Philippine Bank of Communications.
Each case study concludes with a client advisory presentation or investment recommendation, and there are simplified and more complex versions of each model. Plus, you get a set of bonus lessons on accounting and valuation for insurance companies.
It's the only FIG training on the planet that explains how to use modeling techniques to write stock pitches for commercial banks - a required part of any asset management or hedge fund interview. And then you also get a crash course on equity research reports and investment banking pitch books.
You'll gain immediate access to the 103 instructional videos, the stock pitch, ER report, and IB pitch book, the extensive written notes, the practice quiz questions, and the Quick Start Guides so you can quickly grasp the concepts and practical skills taught in the course.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT: This course helps you master oil & gas accounting, NAV models, valuation, and stock pitches and case studies in the energy sector
You'll master oil & gas valuation and financial modeling in this course, including coverage of energy-specific accounting, the financial statements, and industry-specific methodologies such as the Net Asset Value (NAV) Model.
This course is based on two separate case studies: the first is an analysis of Exxon Mobil's $41 billion acquisition of XTO Energy, where you'll learn how investment bankers advising XTO would model and value the company, build a merger model for the deal, and even evaluate XTO as a potential LBO candidate.
The second case study is based on a stock pitch for Ultra Petroleum [UPL], and it incorporates a complex Net Asset Value (NAV) Model based on individual wells drilled in separate regions. It's perfect if you're interested in equity research / hedge fund / asset management roles, and you need to understand how to do a fundamental analysis of an oil & gas company.
There are 95 videos in the course, as well as over a dozen quick reference guides and written documents for when you need to review key points quickly.

...and Our Legendary, 90-Day
No-Questions-Asked Money-Back Guarantee
Take a full 90 days to review BIWS Platinum and make certain it’s everything we promise.
You do not have to finish everything in that time - think of it as your "trial period" or "evaluation time."
If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, simply ask for your money back and we’ll issue a prompt refund, no questions asked.
And Here's a "Mega-Bonus" Includedwith BIWS Platinum That You Can Use to Set Yourself Apart Even More...
This Bonus Case Study Gives You an In-Depth Analysis of
Silver Lake's $24.0 Billion Leveraged Buyout of Dell
(Covers Revenue and Expense Projections, an Advanced
LBO Model, and Post-Buyout Acquisitions)
It’s not an exaggeration to say this is really an entire new course. You get:
In fact, this case study alone delivers more value and instruction than what you would get in a $5,000 in-person seminar. We can do that here because there simply isn't enough time to teach all these concepts, even in a week-long seminar - especially when you spend half your time waiting for other people in class to catch up, or waiting on them while they figure out how to use Excel.
If it’s not clear by now, my mission and goal is to totally OVER-deliver and blow you away with value. I could legitimately charge more for just the bonuses than the asking price of the entire course.
But instead, I would rather give away the bonuses for free so that this course delivers even more value than anything else out there - and so that you get even more chances to practice everything you'll learn in the lessons.
As a Member, you will also get FREE access to new bonus case studies as we add them in future.
10+ hours of instruction, combining ALL the concepts taught in the course (accounting, 3-statement modeling, valuation, merger models, and LBO models)
Covers new concepts not seen elsewhere – what to do with a Founder equity rollover, repatriated cash from overseas subsidiaries, revenue model scenarios across 6 business segments, and how to factor in post-buyout acquisitions and determine if they help or hurt Silver Lake
Embedded quiz questions in all the videos to test your understanding as you advance (you can also test yourself on all these questions at the end with a 71-question quiz)
Plus, a 20-slide case study presentation on the deal that you can take and re-use in your interviews – or tweak and use for other deals or investment ideas on the job
This case study, more than anything else in the courses, teaches you how to think about the process of making an investment decision – which is something no other modeling course on the market – at any price – covers. Other courses focus on the mechanics instead of the "Why" behind how you use the analysis to make decisions.
BIWS Platinum walks you from beginner-level skills up through advanced strategies and tactics, and positions you to develop a unique and specialized skill set.
Practical modeling skills will become second nature - and you’ll be able to demonstrate knowledge that compares favorably to professionals with years of hands-on experience.
Listen up. If you’re wondering:
"Is investing in BIWS Platinum Really worth it?"
"Do I really need all the courses now?"
Here’s the answer: if you're absolutely set on getting the job and moving up the ladder quickly, you’re going to NEED all the knowledge the Platinum package contains.
You may not need every last bit right now... but chances are good that you'll sign up for everything here over time, anyway.
Sign up for everything at once and not only do you save $979, but you’ll also have everything you need at your fingertips, whenever you need it.
You’ll never have to spend another dime on your IB career education because you’ll also get every single course update, bonus case study, and new course we create, FOREVER.
Nothing else – except maybe 10 years on the job – will prepare you as thoroughly for interviews and your future career.
You’ll master techniques that demonstrate advanced knowledge...
...all of which give you a significantly better chance of landing the best internships and jobs with the top investment banks, private equity firms, and hedge funds.
