Leading Advisors in Project Finance

Financial Model Development

Having worked on over 960 transactions we understand the challenges involved and have the skills and experience needed to deliver sophisticated financial modelling solutions for transactions around the world.

Back in 1991, the development of project finance models was our first line of business. Today, our modelling methodology has grown to be widely acknowledged as one of the most transparent and established examples of best practice modelling in the industry.

The members of our highly skilled and respected team have strong analytical backgrounds gained in engineering, mathematics and physical sciences which enable them to develop complex financial models which can be understood by a range of stakeholders within a transaction.

One of our key strengths is that the same team carries out all the modelling and auditing work which ensures the rigour of an audit is combined with the experience of developing a model.

Rolling out template models is not our style; we understand that every client and every transaction is different and we tailor our delivery team according to the particular needs of the assignment.

Steps to complete your model

  1. 1

    Define the outputs

    Once we know about the project, the first step in developing a financial model is understanding what the key outputs of the model are, whether it be a combination of financial statements, ratios, indicators or graphs.

  2. 2

    Review the inputs

    With the outputs are established, it is important to understand where the input data will come from. This may comprise data exports from an accounting systems, trial balances data or management account schedules drawn up for other purposes.

  3. 3

    Establish how the items evolve

    For each item in the model, discussion will ensue as to how the information should evolve over time. Whilst some items should continue forward using the same treatment and assumptions, other data may move at a higher or lower rate than the current base case projections.

  4. 4

    Iterative model development

    Once the outputs are defined, the inputs known, and the forecast approach established for each item, it is then just a case of the analyst joining the dots and developing the model through successive iterations. We expect to have the first draft of the model to you in around 2 weeks from commencing.
