INGARM is a collaborative effort among independent sources of thought, expertise and experiences. Over the years, we have led joint ventures and worked with numerous institutions in creating financial products, restructuring troubled firms and opening new business initiatives. In this regard, we work with a number of educational institutions to provide online financial education courses, as well as certification courses and seminars that assist clients and their employees in gaining a better understanding of financial markets, problem solving, regulatory compliance and utilization of processes. Our partners have extensive knowledge and expertise that includes but is not limited to: (a) fundamental principles of finance; (b) crowd financing; (c) structured finance; and (d) environmental, social responsibility and governance programs.

The basic components of INGARM’s work process are: diagnostic; identification of compliance/regulatory requirements; and, planning and goal alignment. The basic output are dynamic programs that meet the time and resource needs of clients and their employees as well as individuals who simply need to prepare for differing business opportunities. One of the institutions we work with is Pearl Quest Education:
