Still not convinced? Read our book

Practical Financial Modelling is a book on model development and model assurance. Written by our Training Director Jonathan Swan, it provides a toolkit of modelling techniques and a framework of error controls to reduce the risk of spreadsheet error.

Aimed at financial analysts, investment bankers, accountants, and financial management, it presents a modelling methodology that underpins the various proprietary standards used in financial modelling today, as taught on our courses.

This new edition increases the number of worked examples and introduces new material on the audit sheet and audit workbook methodologies, and the delta sheet approach to sensitivity analysis.

The new edition of Practical Financial Modelling is now available for order.
