James Gilpin Trainer

James has been a financial trainer for over 10 years with extensive investment banking and financial training experience. At AMT Training, he provides training to graduates and banking professionals in the areas of accounting, corporate finance, capital markets, derivatives, valuation, M&A and financial modeling.


After graduating from Cambridge University, James began his career with Arthur Andersen. He later joined HSBC Investment Bank and worked in the Corporate Finance and Advisory Division, assisting in origination and execution of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and corporate finance transactions. Following HSBC, James joined Merill Lynch International. Here he worked in the Investment Banking Division on such matters as takeovers, equity and debt issues, capital structure analysis and corporate risk management.


He has a relaxed approach to training, taking his time to ensure he clearly demonstrates the techniques used, and that delegates understand and take in sometimes complex subject matter.  James enjoys delivering training with lots of hands on examples and sharing his ‘real life’ investment banking experience.
