Lemma 29.20.12. The composition of two morphisms which are locally quasi-finite is locally quasi-finite. The same is true for quasi-finite morphisms.

**Proof.**
In the proof of Lemma 29.20.11 we saw that $P = $“quasi-finite” is a local property of ring maps, and that a morphism of schemes is locally quasi-finite if and only if it is locally of type $P$ as in Definition 29.14.2. Hence the first statement of the lemma follows from Lemma 29.14.5 combined with the fact that being quasi-finite is a property of ring maps that is stable under composition, see Algebra, Lemma 10.122.7. By the above, Lemma 29.20.9 and the fact that compositions of quasi-compact morphisms are quasi-compact, see Schemes, Lemma 26.19.4 we see that the composition of quasi-finite morphisms is quasi-finite.
