3 Day Advanced Financial Modelling

Click to download the agenda

Training overview

In business, every decision has an impact on the overall performance of the organization. Managers and shareholders need to, therefore, make the best decisions to keep their firms afloat. The best run companies internationally use Financial Modelling to assist them in making the best decisions.

A business model can be understood as a simulation of the financial position of the firm, several years from now. Aspects such as returns on investment (ROI), profitability, costs, revenues, cash flows, and numerous others are reflected by the model. With the information of your firm’s future position at your fingertips, you are more likely to make the best decisions.

Without a Financial Model of your company, everyone has his or her version of the position of the company, now and in the future. Making the right decisions is, as a result, difficult since each stakeholder thinks that he or she is right. With an integrated business model in place, decisions will be made easily and fast since they will be based on information from a single source.

The course curriculum has been developed and designed from research with actual industry practitioners and will, in just 3 days, give you all the tools and techniques needed to move from basic techniques to becoming a “Black Belt” in Financial Modelling. Other courses in the market cover only one Quadrant – the Financial Statements.

By end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Discover the most efficient ways in planning, designing, structuring, cross-checking and auditing your financial models
  • Construct robust, reliable financial models that are easy to amend and maintain integrity
