Financial models are powerful tools but not without their limitations. Ignoring the complexities and uncertainties of the real world can lead to unrealistic results.

In this course you'll be looking at what effect variable inputs, economic factors and scenario based inputs can have on models. The course also takes a look at the vital importance of the way in which data is presented, and how this can be a strength rather than a weakness.

Upon satisfactory completion of this activity you will be able to:
  • Recognise what ‘real world complexities’ are and why businesses are concerned about them.
  • Understand how financial models can deal with unpredictable inputs.
  • Understand how economic factors affect financial models and reflect the real world.
  • Test your financial model efficiently to include a variety of assumptions.
  • Identify the best way to report your financial model to different audiences.

In this course you will learn how to implement a well thought out financial model using techniques that result in robust models that can handle varying factors and assumptions.
