Financial model

What is a financial model?

A financial model is a tool (usually built in Excel) that represents a company's financial situation and helps forecast future performance. It typically involves calculations and simulations based on the company's financial and operational data.

A well-constructed financial model can support decision-making by helping to analyze the financial impact of different business scenarios or decisions. It's used in various areas such as budgeting, financial planning, fundraising, valuation, and strategic planning.
