Financial modelling is an abstract representation/model of a real-world financial situation. It is essentially a mathematical model to represent the performance of a financial asset or portfolio of a business project or any other investment.
Financial modelling allows the financial performance of a business to be forecasted based on its historical performance. It can help in strategic decision making on various aspects like acquisition, raising or allocation capital, forecasting, budgeting and much more.
