Financial Modeling

Understanding Financial Projections; Structuring Your Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet), Income or Loss Statement and Cash Flow.
  • When Warren Buffett invests in a company, he makes holistic decisions about the quality of the business as if he is buying the whole thing and not simply a decision about the direction the stock might move. When building a financial model, a similar philosophy applies. Before breaking the business into discrete pieces and asking yourself which direction each will go, first look at the business as a whole and understand both what you as an organization are trying to accomplish as well as what the intended use of the model and startup financial projections you are building will be.
