Financial Modelling

You require a financial model to calculate your financial business case? You are searching for a user-friendly calculation tool for complex analyses? You require standardization in financial analyses and want to know if your analysts could work from one template? You are valuating businesses on regular basis and want to use and compare various methods? You want to get rid of black-box financial models from which you hope that their calculations are correct? Your financial models are complex, but need to be simple to use?

More than 90% of all companies use spreadsheets for financial analyses, but various studies show over and over again that more than 90% of those spreadsheets contain errors. Often with huge impact: not only in financial terms, but also image damage is a risk related to spreadsheet errors.

Although spreadsheets have a wide range of opportunities and advantages, you are probably familiar with its disadvantages:

  • How to avoid that your employees are reinventing the wheel and build their own models.
  • Why is more time spent on model building as opposed to financial analyses?
  • Are the calculation and output of our internal models correct?
  • How do I make sure that everybody works in the latest version?

Designing, building and implementing financials models is a specialism of Wingman Business Valuation. It is an integrated part of our valuation services, but also provided as a separate product. Our financial models are used by our clients as tools in liquidity-, strategic planning-, investment- and valuation analysis.

Based on our vast experience we design, build and test our professional financial models in a structured manner according to best practices and standards. In doing so, our models differentiate themselves from the average Excel model in user-friendliness, integrity and transparency.

Wingman embraces the power of spreadsheets, but eliminates its disadvantages.

Recently we were engaged in financial modelling projects for:

  • An investment firm with international exposure (valuation and cost of capital models)
  • A listed construction company (project-liquidity planning)
  • A participation company (financial business case for one of their participations)
