With customers such as Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch and JP Morgan, 7city Learning sets out to hone the skills of some pretty sharp people in the Square Mile. It offers courses in anything from quantitative finance and compliance to interest-rate derivatives and equity valuation. It has boosted sales 90% a year from an annualised £567,000 in 2001 to £3.9m in 2004, driven by the banks’ need to equip staff with specialist knowledge and to ensure compliance with an ever-increasing burden of regulation. The firm was founded in 2000 by a group of six training professionals led by Jonathan Shaw, Gil Christie and Paul Shaw.
