Financial Modelling Introduction 1: Golden Rules

Overview:

Financial modelling is becoming an increasingly important skill in an economic environment characterised by ever more uncertainty. The ability to use Excel to predict what the financial performance and position of a business or venture might look like in the future, depending on particular assumptions and estimates.

It is easy to build a poor financial model. It is difficult to build a high quality financial model which will satisfy the needs of the user. In order to build the latter rather than the former there are a number of Golden Rules (Dos and Don’ts) that must be adhered to. This course explains what those rules are.
