Our financial modelling specialists help organisations develop financial models to understand and analyse key commercial and financial drivers and make important strategic decisions.

Robust, reliable and well constructed financial models provide critical support for businesses making key investment and strategic decisions. Microsoft Excel is the primary tool for building models due to its flexibility, ease of use. Models built using Microsoft Excel can be powerful analytical tools however the flexibility provided by Excel also introduces challenges and risks. Appropriate planning, critical thinking and experience can minimise those risks and ensure the model conveys relevant information to support the decision.

This workshop will provide you with the tools to create financial models aligned with PwC's best practice principles, and involves the hands-on development of an integrated financial model.
