Financial modelling is not an exact science . . .  “Garbage in = garbage out”.  Nearly all of the hundreds of models I have built can be put into one of four categories

1 Go – No Go Models

Typically very high level and designed to determine whether a project, no matter how complex is of interest or not

2 Cases & Sensitivities

The fine tuning of a “Go” result from the above but pre- detailed debt finance overlay

3 Banking Case Models

The overlay of detailed and often multi-layered finance options onto a clearly defined operational financial model. These models often use forward interest and exchange curves and are focused on covenant cover and sensitivities around operational variances and their impact on financing

In some cases, clients just would just like “an answer that fits”. There are many tools with which to do this – contact me for more information.
