Different types of Financial Models
Right from my undergraduate days, I had always been curious about financial models and how to prepare them. My mindset was that it was tough and only a genius could do it. It wasn’t until I was actually thrown into the mix that I realized it was pretty easy. At my former place of work, United Capital Plc, the project finance team was tasked with building complex models for presentation to both the client and potential lenders to aid negotiations and structuring of the deals. In my current role also as a strategy analyst in one of the big four telecommunication companies in Nigeria, Etisalat, I am in charge of building and updating a model for the purpose of improving the company’s EBITDA.
