What is Financial Modeling?

Financial modeling is the creation of a projection, usually in Excel, of company's future performance. Various types of financial models exist, including a discounted cash flow (DCF) model, leveraged buyout (LBO) model, and a merger and acquisition (M&A) model, with each type of model serving its own purpose. 

Financial models are used to value businesses for purposes of raising capital or evaluating investments or to evaluate a financial transaction, such as a leveraged buyout or acquisition. 

This financial modeling resource hub will provide you with guides and short tutorials to get you started learning corporate finance, accounting, and financial modeling essentials. These guides are the ideal free preparation for our financial modeling courses in NYC, where we teach analysts how to build comprehensive models to forecast company performance and value companies.
