Financial Modeling & Analysis is crucial for taking investment decisions that can have a huge financial impact on companies.

The pandemic has created new drivers like government restrictions, supply chain disruptions, changing consumer behavior etc. and affected the financial forecast in some businesses.

To adjust to new realities, planning should shift to “real-time” using scenario modeling techniques and rapid simulation to adjust controllable and non-controllable variables. These scenarios leverage internal and external data to create “what-if” hypotheses.

One can perform financial modeling and analysis with Excel in an easy way. Excel provides you several financial functions that enable you to quickly arrive at Dynamic financial forecasts.
