About Pivotal180

Who are We and What we Do?

  • Going deep without getting lost in the weeds

    Our training explains WHY things work the way they do and HOW the multifaceted pieces fit together in the broader context of a transaction.

  • Complexity Simplified

    Our materials are designed to make hard things feel easy.

    We take dry material and make it interesting and fun.

    We have re-imagined financial training and created a novel approach which demystifies esoteric rules and techniques using simple and elegant examples and quantitative demonstrations.

  • We are passionate about training and providing a learning experience of the highest caliber.

  • Our customized training solutions are the most tailored on the market. 

  • Using an innovative approach with proprietary online content, our training courses are able to cover more material in less time.

  • We advise, train and coach clients in navigating complex financial transactions. We help individuals and organizations to develop real-world deal skills, with an emphasis on financial modeling and analysis.

  • Pivotal180 offers public and live-streaming courses, online training, and in-house workshops which can be custom-tailored to fit the specific needs of a client. We are able to provide instruction and guidance on topics as diverse as governance, compliance, local law and tax regulations in almost any jurisdiction.

  • We teach from experience. Not from a book.
