Corporate Financial Modelling for Valuation and Research

  • Description:

    This course provides a thorough grounding in the construction and manipulation of fully integrated corporate financial models.

    The course starts by building a model of a made-up company with simplified financial data, adding additional features and functionality in stages to show the logic of an integrated model.

    The second stage is to build a single tab forecasting model using the five drivers of cash (‘PACED’ approach). It then continues by building a complex model for a real company, starting with a blank spreadsheet.

    The final element is to add analytical tools and calculations to the model and to manipulate its forecasts through switching between different assumption set scenarios and then adding a DCF calculation to compare the model’s output value to the market price.

    The programme is very ‘hands-on’ with most of the time spent working in Excel. Spreadsheet best practice and a wide range of Excel ‘power tips’ are delivered throughout the programme.

  • Objectives:
