  • 1. 5 Benefits of Using Financial Models for Your Business Financial models are used to project the performance of a company, project, business or any other financial investment and it helps to curb the risks and make better decisions. Financial models are a set of assumptions regarding the future conditions of a business or project that drive projections of its earnings, revenue, balance sheet accounts and cash flow. In real sense, financial modeling is used to forecast the future financial performance of a company. Most financial models are used in running scenarios to test the sensitivity of major outputs to various input assumptions and to forecast financial results with higher confidence. Below are some of the benefits of financial modeling.
  • 2. Quick answers Financial modelling exercises help in providing instant answers to things that may take months or even years to actually take place. This is good for businesses because they will know what to expect when they make certain decisions. However, if a change is made in the financial model, then automatically all the related values and formulae will also change. Minimize risks Financial models help projects and businesses to lower financial risks. This is because business owners will know that if they do this, then this is what is likely to occur. With these models, businesses can know the impact of marketing campaigns and the cost of entering a new market, the effect of price changes on the business and much more. Monthly assessments Financial models can help in providing monthly assessments of the actual performance of the company versus what the budget or plan predicted it would. This is a crucial feedback, especially for small business owners or start-ups that are not used to the planning or budget process. Advanced financial modelling in excel helps business owners to make adjustments that will ensure the business rakes in profits at the end of the day.
