TheFinancial-Academy website is owned and operated by the Israeli company, ITN ACADEMY LTD and subject to the laws of Israel. The website provides a clearly presented platform for structured education and information sharing about financial markets. TheFinancial-Academy is the first financial ‘social’ academy where students are encouraged to connect and exchange opinions about course material openly on the website. The academy provides ‘driven’ mentors to assist students in achieving ‘financial freedom’ through access to financial education, consultancy and financial solutions.

Potential students of the academy are given a broad choice of course categories including courses ‘on demand’ and the opportunity to participate in ‘upcoming events’ where targeted courses are available at a set price published on the website. We were impressed by the transparency of TheFinancial-Academy website where all course content is described in detail and prices clearly stated. Importantly, potential students are given full access to a trading station, trading tools and a hub for blog posts and interaction with other academy members. All standard courses with the exception of the Beginner’s Course, allow one year of access to the weekly webinars, making the learning process flexible.

It’s important to realise that TheFinancial-Academy is not an online broker providing access to a live trading platform. Neither does it offer live trading advice or guarantee profits in financial trading. Moreover, TheFinancial-Academy is a private company and not a government accredited educational institution for further education. Notably, to enrol on any course at TheFinancial-Academy, applicants must be at least 21 years old and have a credit/debit card from a bank recognised by the company. The course prices quoted in our review are not binding. The prices are those seen at the time of writing our review and may change according to the policies of TheFinancial-Academy.

  1. Account Features

    The academy offers customers access to individual course categories, each with a price stated in EUR and a final certificate provided upon course completion. Whilst most courses are in English and Spanish, some are offered only in English. The courses are interactive and include online assessments of the member’s performance.

    We were pleased to see that there is no obligation to select course categories in a particular order or to complete all the courses on offer. Significantly, potential students are invited to sign up for a free trial where they can access the entire worksheet. This includes the lessons, quizzes, practice exams, certificate of completion and even contact with the course instructors.


    Customers aiming at completing several course categories, can benefit from the ‘Memberzone’ price that’s significantly lower than registering for each course individually. Currently, a ‘Memberzone’ price of €4,000 gives members access to the academy for one year. During that time members have access to a trading station, community chat, a three-month webinar and a mentor. The courses covered in the ‘Memberzone’ are the Beginner’s, Advanced, Trading Psychology, Scalping and a VIP Live class. Signing up to the Memberzone does not stop members from paying to participate in any other courses or upcoming events that they find interesting.
