Financial modelling can be simply explained as the process of creating an abstract picture of the real-world financial scenario. A lot goes into creating and perfecting a financial model, it is a mathematical model that can help to predict the financial performance of an asset, portfolio, project, business, organisation, etc. It helps to assess the overall financial performance of the business and make future predictions regarding the same.

So how does it work? What goes into creating a financial model that can accurately predict the performances of financial assets and projects? Well, a lot goes into creating a financial model but the key ingredients in any financial model remain the same. The main elements of a financial model include historical data regarding the asset, project etc. and assumptions about the future that might have an impact on the overall performance.

To assess a company’s financial performance, the preparation of important financial statements including cash flow statement, balance sheet, profit and loss statement, etc. is required. Based on these financial statements, complex financial models are built to predict and forecast future performance. Some of the commonly used financial models include a Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model, Leveraged-Buyout (LBO) model, and Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) model.

In the financial modelling process, all important variables that might affect the financial outcome of a project or business are inserted into the model to create different future scenarios, this helps the organisation by keeping them prepared for all uncertainties and have a contingency in place to tackle the situation. Another important role of financial modelling can be seen in the case of capital budgeting.
