This book introduces the reader to the common approaches used to build a range of financial models. Digestible overviews, guidance and advice are provided on every stage of developing a financial model; from the initial conception that a model is needed, through the stages of design, build and testing, and finally on to its physical use. It takes a subject that can be very dry and complicated, and tries to make it clear, easy to understand and enjoyable to read, focusing on delivering the most valuable knowledge to the reader in the shortest possible time. The outcome will be the development of a valuable skill that is in short supply and will set the reader on the right path to becoming an expert in the field.
