Model development

The right financial model can bring a host of advantages for your business. We can fulfil all your modelling and analytical requirements, whatever your company’s size and sector.

Nearly all significant corporate decisions are underpinned by financial modelling and forecasting, with spreadsheets the most common medium. The majority of businesses rely on these spreadsheets heavily to support their investment decisions, planning and forecasting, and even accounts preparation.

A well-prepared business model can bring these benefits:


  • Crisp and relevant analysis of financial performance and key performance indicators.


  • A robust, transparent and logically sound model that properly reflects business fundamentals.


  • Flexible and upgradable to cope smoothly and rapidly with evolving business needs, with the ability to provide meaningful sensitivity and scenario analysis.


  • Demonstrating and explaining business performance to provide valuable management insight to an organisation’s key stakeholders.

As the authors of the ICAEW Corporate Finance Faculty’s Best Practice Financial Modelling Guideline, we are ideally placed to provide advice and execution support in relation to building financial models which are fit for purpose.
