David Godoy

I always wanted to become a professional in any field of study in life. But as a grown up, I have realized that all I need is a Certification in Commercial Banking and Credit Analysis. My journey started when I was searching for an online institution at Google, so many adverts popped up but my heart beat for CFI, and thank God I have myself a chance to be part of the CFI's ongoing student. I have faith in its Management team and I believe I will be a professional very soon.


Very thorough presentation of syndicated lending.
The course has been delivered in a very proper and interesting manner. I really enjoyed the CFI's Bloomberg screen with a recent example of Covid-19 in this course. To be short, I received very good knowledge on syndicated lending from this program. I genuinely thank CFI for providing that new course.
