The Centre for Value Improvement (CVI) is concerned with creating, developing and nurturing value improvement techniques for modern business. It aims to help organisations to improve their performance through better value and risk management, each of which is recognised as being a prime business driver in times of global economic uncertainty and increasing regulation.

It is a world-class provider of best-of-breed training solutions in corporate finance, valuation, banking, treasury, risk management and strategy.
